The Bear And The Mainden Fair

	  		G                          C 
A bear there was, a bear, a bear! 
G                                      D 
All black and brown and covered in hair! 
G                                      C 
Three boys, a goat, and a dancing bear! 
Am                                   D 
They danced and spun, right to the fair! 
G                                     C 
Oh, sweet she was, and pure, and fair! 
G                                 D 
The maid with honey up in her hair! 
G                               C 
He smelled her on the summer air! 
Am                         C         D 
The maid with honey up in her hair! 

Em              C          Em        C 
From there, to here. From here! To there! 
        G            D           C 
All black and brown and covered in hair! 
Em                C            Em      C 
He smelled that girl on the summer air! 
G            D             G 
The bear! The bear! And the maiden fair! 

G C G D G C Am D G C G D G C Am C    D 

Oh, I'm a maid, and I'm pure and fair! 
I'll never dance with a hairy bear! 
I called a knight, but you're a bear! 
All black and brown and covered in hair! 
He lifted her high in the air! 
He sniffed and roared and he smelled her there! 
She kicked and wailed, the maid so fair! 
When he licked the honey from her hair! 

Em C Em C G D C Em C Em C G D G 

From there to here. From here! To there! 
All black and brown and covered with hair! 
He smelled that girl on the summer air! 
The bear! The bear! And the maiden fair! 

G C G D G C Am D 

She sighed and she squealed and she kicked the air! 
Then she sang: My bear! My bear so fair! 
And off they went into the summer air! 
The bear, the bear, And the maiden fair! 

Em C Em C G D C Em C Em C G D G 

From there to here. From here! To there! 
All black and brown and covered in hair! 
He smelled that girl on the summer air! 
The bear! The bear! 
The maiden fair!
