Notes

In some versions of this song, the bear is wearing tennis shoes in the first verse, as follows...

The other day,
I met a bear,
In tennis shoes,
A dandy pair.


This song is also known as "Bear in Tennis Shoes" and "The Bear in the Forest".

The music was composed by Carey Morgan and Lee David in 1919 to accompany the lyrics for "Sipping Cider Through a Straw".
