The Bear Song (Tune: Sippin Cider) Song



The other day
I met a bear.
Up in the woods
A way up there.

He stared at me.
I stared 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.

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

Now in the woods
There was this tree
The biggest tree
Oh Lordy me.

The nearest branch
Was ten feet up.
I had to jump
And press my luck.

Now don’t you fret.
Now don’t you frown
Cause I caught that branch
On the way back down.

The moral of
This story is
Don’t run from bears
In tennis shoes.

That’s all there is.
There ain’t no more
Unless I meet
That bear once more.

CommentDo this song the same way you would Sippin Cider. Leader says the first four lines of each verse and audience repeats them. Then everybody sings the verse together.
