Kaa: Let me look at you.
[Mowgli turns away from Kaa's eyes]
You don't want me to look at you? Then you look at me.

Mowgli: No sir. I know what you're trying to do, Kaa-AA! Kaa: You do? Uh, I mean, you don't trust me. Mowgli: No! Kaa: Then there's nothing I can do to help? Mowgli: You want to help me?

'Kaa: Ss-certainly. I can see to it that you never have to leave this
Mowgli: How could you do that?Ka'
a: Hmm? Oh, I have my own ss-subtle little ways. But first, you must
trust me.

Mowgil: I don't trust anyone anymore. Kaa: I don't blame you. I'm not like those so-called fair-weather friends
of yours. You can believe in me.

[Kaa finally gets to see into Mowgli's eyes long enough]

(singing) Trust in me
Just in me
Shut your eyes

and Trust in Me

Hold still, please

You can sleep

Safe and sound
Knowing I
Am around

Slip into silent slumber
Sail on a silver mist
Slowly and surely your senses

Will cease to resist

[Mowgli snores while standing on his head on the tip of Kaa's tail]
You're snoring.

Mowgli: Ssssorry.

Kaa: Trust in me
And just in me
Shut your eyes
And trust in me........

(Shere Kahn enters)
