It went like this: Tra-la-la, tra-la-la, Tra-la-la, tra-la-la, Rum-tum-tiddle-um-tum. (Rum-tum-tiddle-um-tum.) "If I know anything about anything, that hole means Rabbit," he said, "and Rabbit means Company," he said, "and Company means Food and Listening-to-Me-Humming and such like. So he bent down, put his head into the hole, and called out: "Is anybody at home?
He had made up a little hum that very morning, as he was doing his Stoutness Exercises in front of the glass: Tra-la-la, tra-la-la, as he stretched up as high as he could go, and then Tra-la-la, tra-la -- oh, help! After breakfast he had said it over and over to himself until he had learnt it off by heart, and now he was humming it right through, properly. " said a voice; and then added, "You needn't shout so loud.
And that being so (if the Bees were Bears), We shouldn't have to climb up all these stairs. "If only I hadn't -- " he said, as he bounced twenty feet on to the next branch. " but you didn't say it aloud because you were so fond of him, and you went home for your umbrella. " called down Winnie-the-Pooh, as soon as you got back to the tree. I have discovered that the bees are now definitely Suspicious." "Shall I put my umbrella up?
IF you happen to have read another book about Christopher Robin, you may remember that he once had a swan (or the swan had Christopher Robin, I don't know which) and that he used to call this swan Pooh. If there's a buzzing-noise, somebody's making a buzzing-noise, and the only reason for making a buzzing-noise that I know of is because you're a bee." Then he thought another long time, and said: "And the only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey."
