The Bear Song

This is a repeat song,

The other day,

I met a bear,

Out in the woods,

A way out there.


The other day I met a bear,

Out in the woods a way out there.


He looked at me,

I looked at him,

He sized up me,

I sized up him.


He looked at me I looked at him,

He sized up me I sized up him,


He said to me,

Why don't you run,

I see you ain't,

Got any gun,


He said to me why don't you run?

I see you ain't got any gun.


And so I ran,

Away from there,

But right behind,

Me was that bear.


And so I ran right out of there,

But right behind me was that bear.


Ahead of me,

There was a tree,

A great big tree,

Oh, glory me.


Ahead of me there was a tree,

A great big tree oh glory me.


The lowest branch,

Was ten feet up,

I'd have to jump,

And trust my luck.


The lowest branch was ten feet up,

I'd have to jump and trust my luck.


And so I jumped,

Into the air,

But I missed that branch,

Away up there.


And so I jumped into the air,

But I missed that branch away up there.


Now don't you fret,

Now don't you frown,

Cause I caught that branch,

On the way back down.


Now don't you fret now don't you frown,

Cause I caught that branch on the way back down.


I heard a crack,

I heard a crunch,

And I became,

That big bear's lunch.


I heard a crack I heard a crunch,

And I became that big bear's lunch.


The moral of,

The story be,

Don't meet a bear,

With out a tree.


The moral of the story be,

Don't meet a bear without a tree.
