Also known as The Other Day

(Repeat Song)

(Italics lyrics in unison)
The other day
I met a bear
Out in the woods
Oh way out there
The other day I met a bear
Out in the woods, oh way out there

He looked at me
I looked at him
He sized up me
I sized up him
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
Repeat in unison

And so I ran
Away from there
But right behind
Me was that bear
Repeat in unison

Ahead of me
There was a tree
A great big tree
Oh glory me
Repeat in unison

The nearest branch
Was ten feet up
I’d have to jump
And trust my luck
Repeat in unison

And so I jumped
Into the air
But I missed that branch
On way up there
Repeat in unison

Now don’t you fret
Now don’t you frown
Cause I caught that branch
On my way back down
Repeat in unison

That’s all there is
There ain’t no more
Unless I meet
That bear once more
Repeat in unison

The end the end
The end the end
The end the end
The end the end
