: 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.
