"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,
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.


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

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

Pooh: Christopher Robin! I think the bees S-U-S-P-E-C-T something.

Christopher Robin: Perhaps they think you're after their honey?

Pooh: Why it maybe that. You never can tell with bees. I'm not a hungry old Pooh cloud I'm just a little black rain cloud, And no one knows better than me bees, Stealing your honey is not allowed. You know a hungry old Pooh cloud Doesn't get hungry, no, not at all, I'm just floating around over the ground Wondering where I will fall.
