The Bear Song

Repeat each line after the leader. After each four lines, repeat entire verse.

The other day

I met a bear

Out in the woods

Away out there

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

'Cause I see

You have no gun

And so I ran

Right out of there

But right behind me

Was that bear

Ahead of me

I spied a tree

A great big tree

Oh lucky me

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

Now don't you fret

Now don't you frown

'Cause I caught that branch

On the way back down

That's all there is

There ain't no more

Unless I meet

That bear once more
