Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Bear, The

Tune: Littlest Worm


The other day, (group repeats)
I met a bear, (repeat)
In tennis shoes, (repeat)
A dandy pair. (repeat)
The other day I met a bear.
In tennis shoes a dandy pair.
Continue with:
He said to, "Why don't you run,
Because you ain't, got any gun."
And so I ran, away from there,
But right behind me, was that bear.
Ahead of me, I saw a tree,
A great big tree, Oh glory be!
The nearest branch, was ten feet up,
I'd have to jump and trust to luck.
And so I jumped, into the air,
But I missed that branch, a way up there.
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 talk to bears, in tennis shoes.
That's all there is, there ain't no more,
So what the heck, are you singing for?
