Bear Song, The

Leader: Group, echoing:
The other day (The other day)
I saw a bear (I saw a bear)
A great big bear (A great big bear)
A way up there (A way up there)
The other day I saw a bear
A great big bear a way up there
[Continue this pattern throughout the song.]

I looked at him
He looked at me
I sized up him
He sized up me

He says to me
Why don't you run
I see you ain't
Got any gun

I said to him
That's a good idea
So come on feet
Let's get out of here

And so I ran
Away from there
But right behind
Me was that bear

But ahead of me
There was a tree
A great big tree Oh, Glory Be!

But the lowest branch
Was ten feet up
I'd have to trust
My luck to jump

And so I jumped
Into the air
But I missed that branch
A way 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
