The Bear Song

(source: "The Worm Song and Other Tasty Tunes", Janet Wilson, 1993.)

(same tune as "The Littlest Worm")

The other day
I met a bear
A great big bear
Away out there! (repeat)

He looked at me
I looked at him
He sized up me
I sized up him! (repeat)

He said to me
"Why don't you run?
I see you ain't
Got any gun!" (repeat)

And so I ran
Away from there
But right behind
Me was that bear! (repeat)

Ahead of me
There was a tree
A great big tree
Oh, glory be! (repeat)

The nearest branch
Was ten feet up
I'd have to jump
And trust my luck! (repeat)

And so I jumped
Into the air
But I missed that branch
Away up there! (repeat)

Now don't you fret
Now don't you frown
'Cause I caught that branch
On the way back down! (repeat)

That is the end
There ain't no more
Unless I meet
That bear once more! (repeat)
