lyrics

Verse 1
Listen up people, gather round here
Cause here comes a tale of a dieting bear
No meat or honey, just apples and pears
One of a kind, that fella was rare

Chorus
Dieting bears, dieting bears
Everyone loves a dieting bear
Dieting bears, dieting bears
Everyone loves a dieting bear

Verse 2
Went for a walk in the Kirkland Glen
Looking for a place to build his den
Saw a river of honey and stuck his face in
Was 2,000 lbs by the time he was ten

Chorus

Introspective Part 1
Love my honey, but I gotta quit
Cause I broke that swing at the peanut butter pit
Fell on my knees, looked up to the sky
Lord I'm going on a diet and I promise I'll try

Verse 3
One fateful day when the cupboard was bare
Went to the fruit stand, no one was there
Saw that girl with the honey blonde hair
And that was the end for a dieting bear

Chorus
Dieting bears, dieting bears
Everyone runs from dieting bears
Dieting bears, dieting bears
Everyone runs from dieting bears

Introspective Part 2
I was doing so well, dropping the pounds
Hibernating hard while the weight came down
But the way that hair, shone in the sun
Now I'm off my diet and you'd better run

Verse 4
So listen up people, you've heard all the facts
Now here's what to do if this fella attacks
If you run from the bear, you're gonna be stuck
Trip one of your friends, you'll have much better luck

Chorus x2
