Oh, Piglet. You can't fool Kanga.

"A Mother's Intuition" is a song from Piglet's Big Movie, sung by Carly Simon. The song starts when Kanga wants to teach Piglet a little lesson since Piglet thinks Kanga and Roo are some monsters that just moved into the Hundred Acre Wood, and Rabbit and Tigger also think the same as Piglet. They come up with a plan to switch Roo with Piglet. When Kanga arrives home, she notices Piglet is in her pouch instead of Roo. Piglet then tries to say, "Aha!", to which means, "This is the way things are and meant to be," or what Rabbit says it means. Kanga figures this out, so as a small "punishment", she plays along and pretends Piglet is Roo. She then gives Piglet a bath, showing him how caring a mother Kanga is and how she is no monster.

A demo version with different lyrics and a much slower, calmer pace is available on the film's official soundtrack.

Lyrics

It's a mother's intuition
To make a little space
It's her quiet mission to tidy up her place
A mother's intuition is like a kangaroo's
She hops around, she mops the ground
She fusses over you
 
A mother
With her intuition
Will know just what to do
 
It's a mother's intuition to wash her baby
Well she won't forget behind the ears
And the extra soap suds on the tail
A mother's into cleaning
She'll clean until she's through
She's smart enough
She's wise enough
To add up two and two

A mother
With her intuition
Will know just what to do
 
A mother has a feeling
She pays special attention
If someone is concealing
If someone's playing tricks
She rubs and scrubs and scours the secrets
Until the answer clicks
 
Then she takes a brush
And polishes your teeth
She'll make you shine and sparkle new
Until she finds the real you
Underneath
 
Isn't it charming?
Just mommy and little Roo
Fresh as a daisy
Sparkling just like new
 
It's a mother's intuition
It's a mother's intuition
It's a mother's intuition

Demo Lyrics

It's a mother's intuition
To make a little space
It's her quiet mission
To tidy up her place
 
A mother's intuition is like a kangaroo's
She hops around, she mops the ground
She fusses over you

A mother
With her intuition
Will know just what to do
 
It's a mother's intuition to wash her baby well
She's like a good magician or a scarlet pimpernel
A mother's intuition will know the false from true
She's smart enough
She's wise enough
To add up two and two
A mother
With her intuition
Will know just who is who
 
Which is what
What is true
Is it green or is it blue?
Is it a cold, or is it the flu?
Is it tweeledee-dum or tweedle-doo?
Ooh, ooh
And is this really Roo?
Oh, my dear!
I think it looks a little more like Piglet
 
La, la, la, la...
A mother's intuition
La, la, la, la...
