Love is a song that never ends

Life may be swift and fleeting

Hope may die

Yet love's beautiful music

Comes each day like the dawn

Love is a song that never ends

One simple theme repeating

Like the voice of a heavenly choir

Love's sweet music flows on

Like the voice of a heavenly choir

Love's sweet music flows on

Mother, what we going to do today?

l'm going to take you to the meadow.

Meadow? What's the meadow?

lt's a very wonderful place.

Then why haven't we been there before?

You weren't big enough.

- Mother, you know what?

- What?

We're not the only deer in the forest.

- Where did you hear that?

- Thumper told me.

Well, he's right.

There are many deer

in the forest besides us.

Then why don't l ever see them?

- You will, sometime.

- On the meadow?

Perhaps.

Hush now.

We're almost there.

- The meadow.

- Wait.

Bambi, wait.

You must never rush out on the meadow.

There might be danger.

Out there, we're unprotected.

The meadow is wide and open,

and there are no trees or bushes

to hide us.

So we have to be very careful.

Wait here.

l'll go out first. And if the meadow

is safe, l'll call you.

Come on, Bambi. lt's all right.

Come on.

Good morning, Prince Bambi.

Good morning, young prince.

Hello. What ya eatin'?

- Clover.

- lt's awfully good.

lt's delicious.

Why don't you try some?

No, not that green stuff.

Just eat the blossoms.

That's the good stuff.

Thumper.

- Yes, Mama?

- What did your father tell you?

About what?

About eating the blossoms

and leaving the greens?

Oh, that one.

Eating greens is a special treat.

lt makes long ears

and great big feet.

But it sure is awful stuff to eat.

l made that last part up myself.
