The Jungle Book

Synopsis: Abandoned after an accident, baby Mowgli is taken and raised by a family of wolves. As the boy grows older, the wise panther Bagheera realizes he must be returned to his own kind in the nearby man-village. Baloo the bear however thinks differently taking the young Mowgli under his wing and teaching that living in the jungle is the best life there is. Bagheera realizes that Mowgli is in danger, particularly from Shere Khan the tiger who hates all people. When Baloo finally comes around, Mowgli runs off into the jungle where he survives a second encounter with Kaa the snake and finally, with Shere Khan. It's the sight of a pretty girl however that gets Mowgli to go the nearby man-village.

Sleep. Sleep.

Ba... Ba-Bagh-gheera.

Oh, now... Now look, there's

no use arguing any more.

Oh! Now no more talk

till morning.

He won't be here

in the morning.

Hmm? Oh, yes, he will.

I... Kaa!

Hold it, Kaa!

Oh! My sinus.

You have just made

a serious mistake, my friend.

A very stupid...

- Now, now, now, now, Kaa, I was...

- mistake.

Look me in the eye when

I'm speaking to you.

- Oh, please, Kaa.

- Both eyes, if you please.

You have just

sealed your doom.

Look, Bagheera!

Look, Bagheera.

Wake up, Bagheera.

Just you wait till

I get you in my coils.

Bagheera, he's got

a knot in his tail!

"He's got a knot

in his tail."

Ooh, this is going to

slow down my slither.

So, you can look out

For yourself, can you?

So you want to stay

in the jungle, do you?

Yes. I wanna stay

in the jungle.

Oh! Now, now, now for

the last time, go to sleep!

Man cub.

Man cub.

Hup, two, three, four

Keep it up

Two, three, four

Hup, two, three, four

Keep it up

Two, three, four

Hup, two, three, four

A parade.

Oh, no!

The dawn patrol again.

Company, sound off!

Oh, the aim of our patrol

Is a question rather droll

For to march and drill

Over field and hill

Is a military goal

Is a military goal

With a hup

Two, three, four

Dress it up

two, three, four

By the ranks or single file

Over every jungle mile

Oh, west amp and crush

through the underbrush

In the military style

In the military style

Hello. What are you doing?

Shh! Drilling.

- Can I do it too?

- Sure. Just do what I do.

But don't talk in ranks.

It's against regulations.

To the rear! March!

The other way.

Turn around.

Hup, two, three, four

Keep it up

Two, three, four

To the rear! Ho!

Company, halt!

That means stop.

Company, left face!

March, march, march.

My feet are killing me.
