The Bear Song
(tune: Sippin' Cider)

This song is a repeat song - leader sings the line and the girls repeat after her

The other day, I saw a bear
Out in the woods, away out there.
He looked at me I looked at him.
He sized me up I sized up him.

He said to me, "Why don't you run?
I see you ain't, got any gun." .
I said to him "That's a good idea."
Come on now feet let's up and flee.

And so I ran, away from there,
But right behind, me came that bear.
And then I saw ahead of me
A great big tree Oh mercy me!

The lowest branch, was ten feet up.
Iíll 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, and don't you frown,
I caught that branch, on the way back down.
That's all there is, there ain't no more
Unless I see that bear once more.
