1. I chanced upon a big brown bear.
A gruff old bear was he; He asked content within his lair,
I looked at him, he looked at me,
And all he said was "Woof!"
Ah me! And all he said was "woof!"

2. That big brown bear just hugged his lair,
And blinked a twinkling eye,
He ne'er as much as moved a hair,
But scared to death was trembling I,
When all he said was "Woof!"
Oh My, When all he said was "woof!"

3. I doubted his sublime intent,
And did not stay for proof,
My heels in flight were swiftly bent,
For I'm inclined to keep aloof
When big brown bears say "woof!"
O my! When big brown bears say "woof!"
