Heffalumps and Woozles (lyrics only)

Written by Richard and Robert Sherman (1968) 

They're black, they're brown,
They're up, they're down!
They're in, they're out,
They're all about!
They're far, they're near,
They're gone, they're here!
They're quick, they're slick,
They're insincere!
Beware! Beware!
Be a very wary bear!

A heffalump or woozle
Is very confusil.
A heffalump or woozle's
Very sly.
(Sly! Sly! Sly!)
They come in ones and twosles,
But if they so choosles,
Before your eyes   
You'll see them multiply!
(Ply! Ply! Ply!)
They're extraordinary,
So better be wary,
Because they come
In ev'y shape and size!
(Size! Size! Size!)
If honey's what you covet,
You'll find that they love it,
Because they'll guzzle
Up the thing you prize!
Beware! Beware!
Be a very wary bear!

A heffalump or woozle
Is very confusil.
A heffalump or woozle's
Very sly.
(Sly! Sly! Sly!)
They come in ones and twosles,
But if they so choosles,
Before your eyes
You'll see them multiply!
(Ply! Ply! Ply!)
They're extraordinary,
So better be wary,
Because they come
In ev'y shape and size!
(Size! Size! Size!)
If honey's what you covet,
You'll find that they love it,
Because they'll guzzle
Up the thing you prize!

They're black, they're brown,
They're up, they're down!
They're in, they're out,
They're all about!
They're far, they're near,
They're gone, they're here!
They're quick, they're slick,
They're insincere!
Beware! Beware! Beware! Beware! Beware!
