"Up, Down and Touch the Ground" is a song from the 1966 featurette Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree. It was also subsequently incorporated into the 1977 film, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, which is an amalgamation of the three previous Winnie-the-Pooh featurettes, including Honey Tree. In the song, Winnie the Pooh's exercise makes him hungry, and although he over-eats, he is proud of his fat stomach and he exercises to gain weight and grow even rounder.

The song was written by Robert & Richard Sherman, who have written most of the music for the Winnie-the-Pooh franchise over the years.


Winnie the Pooh: Up-Down-Up

When I up, down, touch the ground

it puts me in the mood

Up, down, touch the ground

in the mood (smacks lips) for food

I am stout, round and I have found

speaking poundage-wise

I improve my appetite

when I exercise

(ripping sound)

Oh stuff and fluff

(ties his back together again)

That's better

(reflection in the mirror talks back)

Thank you

Now, where was I?

(grumbling sound from stomach)

Oh, yes, I'm rumbly in my tumbly.

Time for something sweet

I am short, fat, and proud of that

and so with all my might

I up, down, up-down

to my appetite's delight

While I up, down, touch the ground

I think of things to chew

(Mmm, like honey, milk, and chocolate)

With a hefty-happy appetite

I'm a hefty-happy Pooh.

With a hefty-happy appetite

he's a hefty-happy Pooh.
