My Own Home (the "Jungle Book Theme") (lyrics only)

Written by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman | Performed by Darleen Carr as "Sari."

My own home, my own home
My own home, my own home

Father's hunting in the forest
Mother's cooking in the home
I must go to fetch the water
'Til the day that I'm grown
'Til I'm grown, 'til I'm grown
I must go to fetch the water
'Til the day that I'm grown

Then I will have a handsome husband
And a daughter of my own
And I'll send her to fetch the water
I'll be cooking in the home
Then I'll send her to fetch the water
I'll be cooking in the home


From the Walt Disney movie musical "The Jungle Book" (1967).
