Lyrics

We’re going on a bear hunt. (x2)
We’re going to catch a big one. (x2)
I’m not scared. (x2)
Oh, look at those tall reeds!
They’re so tall!
We can’t go over it. (x2)
We can’t go under it. (x2)
We’ll have to go through it!
Swish, swish, swish, swish.

We’re going on a bear hunt. (x2)
We’re going to catch a big one. (x2)
I’m not scared. (x2)
Uh oh, there’s a big lake! Oh!
We can’t go over it. (x2)
We can’t go under it. (x2)
We’ll have to swim through it.
Splash, splash, splash, splash.

We’re going on a bear hunt. (x2)
We’re going to catch a big one. (x2)
I’m not scared. (x2)
Ugh, look at all that mud! So muddy!
We can’t go over it. (x2)
We can’t go under it. (x2)
We’ll have to walk through it.
Squish, squish, squish, squish.

We’re going on a bear hunt. (x2)
We’re going to catch a big one. (x2)
I’m not scared. (x2)
Uh oh, what’s that? It’s a cave.
It’s a cave!
We can’t go over it. (x2)
We can’t go under it. (x2)
Going to have to go into it.
Step, step, step, step.

We’re going on a bear hunt. (x2)
We’re going to catch a big one. (x2)
I’m not scared.
I’m a little scared.
It’s sure is dark in here.
What’s that in the corner?
I see two big eyes. (x2)
I feel one wet nose. (x2)
I feel two sharp teeth. (x2)
I know what that is. It’s a bear!

Let’s get out of here!
Let’s run out of the cave!
Step, step, step.

Quickly back through the mud!
Squish, squish, squish.

Let’s cross the lake!
Splash, splash, splash.

Through the tall reeds!
Swish, swish, swish.

Through the yard,
up the stairs,
into the house,
close the door!
We’re safe.
That’s a close one.
Let’s not go bear hunting anymore!
