Going on a Bear Hunt Lyrics

We’re goin’ on a bear hunt,
We’re going to catch a big one,
I’m not scared
What a beautiful day!
Oh look! It’s some long, wavy grass!
Can’t go over it,
Can’t go under it,
Can’t go around it,
Got to go through it!

We’re goin’ on a bear hunt,
We’re going to catch a big one,
I’m not scared
What a beautiful day!
Oh look! It’s a mushroom patch.
Can’t go over it,
Can’t go under it,
Can’t go around it,
Got to go through it!

We’re goin’ on a bear hunt,
We’re going to catch a big one,
I’m not scared
What a beautiful day!
Oh look! It’s a wide river.
Can’t go over it,
Can’t go under it,
Can’t go through it,
Got to swim across it.

We’re goin’ on a bear hunt,
We’re going to catch a big one,
I’m not scared
What a beautiful day!
Oh look! A deep, dark cave.
Can’t go over it,
Can’t go under it,
Can’t go through it,
Got to go in it.

Uh, oh! It’s dark in here.
I feel something,
It has lots of hair!
It has sharp teeth!
It’s a bear!

Hurry back through the river,
Back through the mushroom patch,
Back through the long grass
Run in the house and lock the door.
Phew! That was close!

I’m not afraid!

Going on a Bear Hunt Lyrics – About

A dad and his four youngsters – a baby, a preschool kid and two more established young ladies – go on the customary bear chase dependent on the old camp serenade: ”We will get a major one. /What a lovely day! /We’re not frightened. /Oh-goodness! Grass! /Long, wavy grass. /We can’t go over it. /We can’t go under it. /Oh, no! /We must go through it!” The family slips down a lush incline, washes across a waterway, slimes through mud and, obviously, at last sees the bear, who pursues them all back to their home. It’s a phenomenal excursion – was it genuine or envisioned?- – with the family’s activities (and collaboration) adding to the outing a goodnatured, happy disposition. The plan of the larger than usual volume substitutes highly contrasting drawings with ravishing full-shading watercolor works of art, which Oxenbury uses to magnificent impact. Perusers acquainted with her board books will track down an alternate style here, of puddled tones and ranges of light and shadow. The size of the photos and the straightforwardness with which the content can be yelled so anyone might hear make this ideal for families or gatherings to share.
