We're Going on a Bear Hunt

Greg and Steve's version is in the video below! Their words aren't quite the same as mine, but many of the key elements are.



We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.

Oh oh!
Grass,
Long, wavy, grass.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go through it!
Swishy swashy, swishy swashy.

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.

Oh oh!
Mud,
Thick, oozy mud.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go through it!
Squelch squelch, squelch squelch

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.
Oh oh!
A river,
A deep, cold river.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go through it!
Splish splosh, splish splosh.

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.

Oh oh!
A forest,
A big, dark forest.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go through it!
Stmble trip, stumble trip.

We're going on a bear hunt,
We're gonna catch a big one,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared.

Oh oh!
A cave,
A scary, dark cave.
We can't go over it,
We can't go under it,
We've gotta go through it!
Tiptoe, tiptoe.

OH NO IT'S A BEAR!!!
Quick!
Through the cave, tiptoe, tiptoe,
Through the forest, stumble trip, stumble trip,
Through the river, splish splosh, splish spolosh,
Through the mud, squelch squelch, squelch squelch,
Through the grass, swishy swashy, swishy swashy.
Run to the house, run up the stairs,
Oh oh forgot to shut the door!!
Run back downstairs, shut the door,
Run back up, to the bedroom,
Jump into bed, pull up the covers,
WE ARE NEVER GOING ON A BEAR HUNT AGAIN!!
