Give It a Try is a song performed by Piglet, Rabbit, and Tigger and speaker Pooh in "The Spice of Life," a story from The Book of Pooh. In the story, the bees have gone on strike, leading to a honey shortage and Pooh's stomach suddenly growls. And his friends are worried about him not eating. They sing the song to try to get him to eat other types of food. First, Piglet tries to convince him to eat an acorn salad. Then, Rabbit wants him to try gazpacho carrot fricassee. And Tigger tries to tempt with a peanut butter marshmallow and banana sandwich on a seven grain health loaf. At the end, everyone sings their parts of the song together in harmony until the line; "You Oughta Give It a Try" together. The song doesn't work-- Pooh asks them if they have any honey. And they shook their heads for a "No."

This song was featured as Track 20 and 9 on the album Songs from The Book of Pooh and The Book of Pooh: Musical Original Songs.


  • In the CD, There was one mistake. The line; "What's That? Gazpacho Carrot Fricassee" should have been "And Then Gazpacho Carrot Fricassee." Though, In the video Fun With Friends, The line was actually true.
