The Big Nosed Bear


Download this song!

Well, the big-nosed bear lived in a cave,
And men who thought themselves quite brave
Would wander in with cheery shout,
But none, as yet, have wandered out.

Well, the big-nosed bear ate fruit and nuts,
And salmon from the fish-wife's huts,
For while they smoked by the sandy bay,
He'd steal their fish and run away.

Well, the big-nosed bear was old and wise,
And other bears were half of his size,
There's some who say he lives on still,
In the big dark cave on the side of the hill.
