Lyrics

1-2-3-4-5 Senses!

There is tall grass. (There is tall grass)
Can't go around it.
Can't go under it.
Let's go through it!
There is a huge lake. (There is a huge lake)
Can't go around it.
Can't go under it.
Let's swim across it.
There is a big tree. (There is a big tree)
Can't go around it.
Can't go under it.
Let's climb up it.
There aren't any bears. (There aren't any bears)
Let's climb down.
There is a bridge. (There is a bridge)
Can't go around it.
Can't go under it.
Let's go over it.
There is a cave. (There is a cave)
Can't go around it.
Can't go over it.
Let's go through it.
There are two eyes. (There are two eyes)
There is a nose. (There is a nose)
It's a bear! AH!
Running out of the cave!
Coming to the bridge!
Climbing the big tree!
Swimming across the lake!
Going through the tall grass!
Safe at last! We're home!

Going on a Bear Hunt

We're going on a bear hunt.
We're on our way.
We're going to find a lost one.
We'll find him today.
Uh-oh, grass!
Long, wavy grass.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
We've got to go through it.
Swish-Swish
Swish-Swish
Swish-Swish
Swish-Swish
We're going on a bear hunt.
We're on our way.
We're going to find a lost one.
We'll find him today.
Uh-oh, a river!
A deep, cold river.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
We've got to go through it.
Splish-Splash
Splish-Splash
Splish-Splash
Splish-Splash
We're going on a bear hunt.
We're on our way.
We're going to find a lost one.
We'll find him today.
Uh-oh, a mountain!
A very big mountain.
Can't go through it.
Can't go under it.
We've got to go over it.
Up and Over
Up and Over
Up and Over
Up and Over
We're going on a bear hunt.
We're on our way.
We're going to find a lost one.
We'll find him today.
Uh-oh, a snowstorm!
A whirly, twirly snowstorm.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
We've got to go through it.
Shiver-Shake
Shiver-Shake
Shiver-Shake
Shiver-Shake
We're going on a bear hunt.
We're on our way.
We're going to find a lost one.
We'll find him today.
Uh-oh, a cave!
A narrow, gloomy cave.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
We've got to go through it.
