We always used one final verse in scouting.

That's all there is
There aint no more
so what the heck
are we singing for.

: It's a classic campfire echo song, where the song leader
: sings a line and the group sings it back, so you don't
: have to learn the song before you sing it:

: The other day
: (echo)
: I met a bear
: (echo)
: In tennis shoes
: (echo)
: A dandy bear
: (echo)
: (all together)
: The other day I met a bear;
: In tennis shoes -- a dandy bear;

: (other verses similar)

: He looked at me,
: I looked at him.
: He sized up me,
: I sized up him.

: He said to me,
: Why don't you run?
: For I see you ain't
: Got any gun.
:
: And so I ran
: Away from there.
: And right behind
: me was that bear.

: And then I came
: up to a tree.
: I great big tree --
: Oh goodness me!

: The nearest branch
: Was ten feet up.
: I'd have to jump
: and trust my luck.

: And so I jumped
: Into the air,
: And I missed that branch
: Away up there.

: Now don't you fret.
: Now Don't you frown.
: 'Cause I caught that branch
: On the way back down!

: The moral is
: No shocking news:
: Don't talk to bears
: In tennis shoes.

: (and the classic camp song can't-leave-well-enough-alone
: epilogue:

: The end. The end.
: The end. The end.
