The Bear Song

The other day, I saw a bear
In tennis shoes, a dandy pair (repeat)

He said to me, “Why don’t you run?”
“Because 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 had to jump, and trust my luck (repeat)

And so I jumped, into the air
But I missed that branch, oh way up there (repeat)

But don’t you fret, and don’t you frown
‘Cuz I caught that branch, on the way back down (repeat)

The moral of, this story is
Don’t talk to bears, in tennis shoes. (repeat)
