Chip2447 Lyr Req: Oh Boy Do I Love Bears (Larry Clark) (66* d) Lyr Add: OH BOY DO I LOVE BEARS (Larry Clark) 28 Jan 05


G'day, You too. Bye bye.
^^^
Oh boy do I love bears
you can bet your life that I do.
There ain't nothing anywhere like a big black bear,
As long as he is a mile away from you.

Well, the first time I went camping,
just a knapsack on my back.
I hiked ten miles into the bush
with a buddy by the name of Jack.
And old Jack he was an expert,
he'd been camping for a whole lotta years.
All we took was some fishin gear, skillet and a dozen beers.

Well the day went great.
Went fishin on the lake,
and we sure had a barrel of fun.
About ten that night, just a little bit tight
fryin fillets in the setting sun.
Found a patch of ground and laid a sleeping bags down,
And we crawled in for the night.
Woke up about three, staring down at me
was a shadow in the pale moonlight.

Was a bear, a great big mother of a bear.

I was up in a flash,
I did the ten mile dash
and I never ever went back there.

Oh boy do I love bears
you can bet your life that I do.
There ain't nothing anywhere like a big black bear,
As long as he is a mile away from you.

Well, the next time I went camping,
I took my brand new waterproof tent
To a campground full of people.
Bout the nicest place I ever went.
I had a cooler full of steaks and things,
and another one full of beer.
I had plenty to eat,
Had plenty to drink,
Could have stayed there for a year.

About two oclock in the afternoon
well I strolled down to the lake.
I met a girl named Jan,
with a deep brown tan.
Oh boy that was a break.
By ten that night we were snuggled up nice,
and the tent was zipped up tight.
I Woke up about three, staring down at me
was a shadow in the pale moonlight.

It was a great big hole,
in my brand new tent.
Was a bear, a great big mother of a bear.

I was up in a flash,
I did the hundred mile dash
and I never ever went back there.

Oh boy do I love bears
you can bet your life that I do.
There ain't nothing anywhere like a big black bear,
As long as he is a mile away from you.

Well the last time I went camping,
I was invited by a friend called Jake,
To a great big bear proof cabin
on a hill over looking the lake.
We had booze, and girls and a fireplace,
and music that could turn you on.
We had everything that a man could need
'cept, we didn't have an indoor john.
Well late that night my stomach didn't feel right.
And I knew that I had to go
down the winding path to the little outhouse
About sixth yards or so.
Well my knees were knocking, but I just kept walking
and I made it to the place alright.
When I finished my chore and I opened the door
there was a shadow in the pale moonlight.
I didn't even have time to buckle my belt.

Was a bear, a great big mother of a bear.

Soon I was running through the trees
with my pants around my knees,
and I never ever went back there.

Oh boy do I love bears
you can bet your life that I do.
There ain't nothing anywhere like a big black bear,
As long as he is a mile away from you.

Oh boy do I love bears
you can bet your life that I do.
There ain't nothing anywhere like a big black bear,
As long as he is a mile away from you.

Bump bum....
