Pooh's Heffalump Movie - Kanga Tucks Roo into Bed

Little Mr. Roo is a song from the film Pooh's Heffalump Movie. The opening of the song is performed by Kath Soucie as Kanga, with the remainder performed by Carly Simon. The song focuses on Roo, who Kanga feels is "reaching for the moon" and shouldn't be in such a hurry to grow up, but should instead "take some time for dreaming." It was released as Track 3 on the album The Best of Pooh & Heffalumps Too.

Later in the film, Roo (voiced by Nikita Hopkins) performs a brief reprise of the song to try to cheer up his new friend, Lumpy.


Little Mister Roo

Reaching for the moon

So many things you've got to do

And no time for dreaming

Little Mister Roo

Let the stars shine over you

Don't grow up too fast too soon

Save some time for dreaming

Settle in, settle down

Let me see that sleepy yawn on your face

Close your eyes

I will love you completely

And always

Little Mister Roo

The moon shines silver over you

No one knows you like I do

And little Mister Roo

Reaching for the moon

Don't grow up too fast

Too soon
