The Bear Went over the Mountain (lyrics only)

(Sung to the tune of "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow")

The bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain
The bear went over the mountain, to see what he could see.
And all that he could see, and all that he could see
Was the other side of the mountain, the other side of the mountain
The other side of the mountain, was all that he could see.

For he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow, which nobody can deny.
Which nobody can deny, which nobody can deny
For he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow, which nobody can deny.
 

The bear went over the river, the bear went over the river
The bear went over the river, to see what he could see.
And all that he could see, and all that he could see
Was the other side of the river, the other side of the river
The other side of the river, was all that he could see.

For he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow, which nobody can deny.
Which nobody can deny, which nobody can deny
For he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow
For he's a jolly good fellow, which nobody can deny.
