spoken:
When I was a puppy, I used to enjoy reading about Winnie the Pooh. He's a bear, like Fozzie Bear. But not very much like Fozzie Bear. This is a song he would sing when somebody would say something he didn't quite understand. He could have said "what?", or "I beg your pardon", but Pooh would instead sing this song, which he made up for singing when his brain felt fluffy.

(Sang)
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
A fly can't bird, but a bird can fly.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.

spoken:
Now this is where the song changes key. It's what we call modulation. That's G Sharp Minor.

(Sang)
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
A fish can't whistle and neither can I.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.

Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
Why does a chicken? I don't know why.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.
