Susan of DT Stories and songs about bears (52* d) RE: Stories and songs about bears 15 Jun 19


Funny, it looks like my favorite bear song is not in the DT.
call and response, like Sipping Cider thru a Straw

the other day, the other day
I saw a bear, I saw a bear
up in the woods, up in the woods
away out there, a way out there
The other day I saw a bear, up in the woods a way out there

(similar structure)
He looked at me
I looked 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, and right behind me was that bear

And then I saw, ahead of me, a great big tree, oh lordy me

The nearest branch, was ten feet up, I'd have to jump and trust to luck

and so I jumped into the air and I missed that branch away 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.
