The Bear (Response Song)

The other day .... I saw a bear
Up in the woods Away up there

Chorus repeats the verse:

The other day I saw a bear,
Up in the woods away up 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

And so I ran
Away from there
And right behind
Was that big bear

But up ahead
There was a tree
A great big tree
Oh glory me

The nearest 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
And don't you frown
'Cause I caught that branch
On the way back down

Well, later I met
That bear once more
But he was just
A rug on the floor

This is the end
There ain't no more
Unless I meet
A BEAR once more
