Song Lyrics

Verse 1
Here comes a bear (stomping, stomping)
A very scary bear (stomping, stomping)
Paws up in the air (stomping, stomping)
Stomping everywhere

Verse 2
Kangaroo jumps (boing boing)
He jumps so high (boing boing)
He almost touches the sky (boing boing)
The kangaroo jumps so high

Verse 3
Here comes a snake (Sssss Sssss)
Slithering along (Sssss Sssss)
His body's very long (Sssss Sssss)
Slippery snake slithers along

Verse 4
Wombat crawls (crawling crawling)
Nose to the ground (crawling crawling)
He's making lots of sound (crawling crawling)
Crawling everywhere

Repeat Verse 1
