lyrics

If you gather round me children,
a story I will tell
About a big old bad bipolar bear
the Arctic knew him well

He was strolling the North Pole
where many a friend he had
But the ice below his big white paws
was full of tiny cracks

He was thinking about penguins
and the funny way they walk
And nighttime slowly turned to day
as of himself he talked

As he hopscotched cross the icebergs
While whistling a merry tune
so full of it, and of himself
and crazy as a loon

He was bold and bound for glory,
he never paid them cracks no mind
Some say what an unfortunate accident
Some say it served him right

See, one day God was thinking
wasn’t pride a deadly sin
Yeah, I think I read that somewhere
in that big old book that I’m in

So like Moses sent the locust
on my divine command
My flock will melt the icecaps
and make your misery end

No sooner said that done
did descend his holy wrath
And the cracks, they swallowed Mr. Bear
in about a second flat

He landed on the south side
He landed with a thud
can’t help thinking I’m there
but for the grace of God

Well, the moral of the story,
the moral of this song
is simply that one should never be
where one does not belong
