"Little Black Rain Cloud" is a song from the 1966 short film Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree, the first Winnie the Pooh cartoon by Walt Disney. The song was also subsequently incorporated into the 1977 movie The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, which is an amalgamation of the three previous Winnie the Pooh featurettes,
Winnie-the-pooh-little-black-rain-cloud1
including Honey Tree.

In the song Pooh comments about the on-screen actions where he is pretending to be a "Little Black Rain Cloud", as the title implies. It is Pooh's hope that the bees will not notice him as he approaches their ever coveted honey.

The song was written by Robert & Richard Sherman, who have written most of the music for the Winnie the Pooh franchise over the years.

Lyrics

Film Version

Winnie the Pooh:
I'm just a little black rain cloud
Hovering under the honey tree
I'm only a little black rain cloud
Pay no attention to little me

Pooh and Christopher Robin:
Oh, everyone knows that a rain cloud
Never eats honey, no, not a nip

Winnie the Pooh:
I'm just floating around over the ground
Wondering where I will drip

Full version

Winnie the Pooh:
I'm just a little black rain cloud
Hovering under your honey tree
Only a little black rain cloud
Pay no attention to little me

You know a hungry old Pooh cloud
Never gets hungry, no, not at all
I'm just floating around over the ground
Wondering where I will fall

I'm not a hungry old Pooh bear
I'm just a little black honey cloud
And no one knows better than me, bees,
Stealing your honey is not allowed

Everyone knows that a rain cloud
Never eats honey, no, not a nip
I'm just floating around over the ground
Wondering where I will drip
