The mysterious things in question are

Heffalumps and Woozles, from Disney's version of Winnie-the-Pooh.

More precisely,

They're black, they're brown, they're up, they're down
They're in, they're out, they're all about
They're far, they're near, they're gone, they're here
They're quick and slick, they're insincere
Beware, beware
Be a very wary bear

Incidentally, "famously" is overstating it, at least so far as my state of knowledge goes. I had never encountered

the song in question (being unfamiliar with Disney-Pooh) but noticed the brown/down and near/here rhymes and went a-googling (first guesses: nursery rhyme, Dr Seuss, of course no luck with either; but putting in "black brown up down far near there here lyrics" did the trick.)

    $\begingroup$ Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day won an Oscar, bro, that's famous enough for me (my watching a VHS of it over and over as a kid has nothing to do with it). But good job on finding it without knowing what the heck I was talking about! $\endgroup$
