The Bear in Tennis Shoes
Children's Song Lyrics

The other day (repeat), I met a bear (repeat),
With tennis shoes (repeat), a dandy pair (repeat).
The other day, I met a bear,
With tennis shoes, a dandy pair.

He looked at me (repeat), I looked at him (repeat),
He sized me up (repeat), I sized up him (repeat).
He looked at me, I looked at him,
He sized me up, I sized up him.

He said to me (repeat), "Why don't you run? (repeat),
I see you don't (repeat), have any gun (repeat)."
He said to me, "Why don't you run?,
I see you don't, have any gun."

So I did run (repeat), away from there (repeat),
and right behind (repeat), me came that bear (repeat).
So I did run, away from there,
and right behind, me came that bear.

Ahead of me (repeat), I saw a tree (repeat).
A great big tree (repeat), oh golly-gee (repeat).
Ahead of me, I saw a tree,
A great big tree, oh golly-gee.

The only branch (repeat), was 10 feet up (repeat),
I'd have to jump (repeat), and trust my luck (repeat).
The only branch, was 10 feet up,
I'd have to jump, and trust my luck.

And so I jumped (repeat), into the air (repeat),
But I missed that branch (repeat), away up there (repeat).
And so I jumped, into the air,
But I missed that branch, away up there.

Now don't you fret (repeat), now don't you frown (repeat),
'Cause I caught that branch (repeat), On the way back down (repeat).
Now don't you fret, now don't you frown,
'Cause I caught that branch, On the way back down.

The moral is (repeat), no shocking news (repeat),
Don't talk to bears (repeat), in tennis shoes (repeat).
The moral is, no shocking news,
Don't talk to bears, in tennis shoes.

That's all there is (repeat), there is no more (repeat),
Unless I meet (repeat), that bear once more (repeat).
That's all there is, there is no more,
Unless I meet, that bear once more.

The end, The end (repeat), The end, The end (repeat),
The end, The end (repeat), The end, The end (repeat).
The end, The end, The end, The end,
The end, The end, The end, The end.
