Bear Songs


Oh, the bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain, to see what he could see.

To see what he could see, to see what he could see O the bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain, to see what he could see.

But all that he could see, but all that he could see, was the other side of the mountain, the other side of the mountain, the other side of the mountain Was all that he could see.


Three Brown Bears (tune: 3 Blind Mice)

Three Brown Bears
Three Brown Bears
See all their chairs
See all their chairs
The Mommy cooked in a big black pot
The Baby always cried a lot
Three Brown Bears
Three Brown bears
