The Other Day I Met a Bear (Note: Group (G) follow leader (L), then both (B)) L: The other day G: The other day L: I met a bear G: I met a bear L: Up in the woods G: Up in the woods L: A way up there G: A way up there B: The other day I met a bear, up in the woods away up there I looked at him... He looked at me...I sized up him...He sized up me... 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 .. I missed that branch .. Away up there Now don't you fret .. And 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 _________ We used to sing this in the Girl Scouts tune; Sipping Cider SOF
