Oh Where Oh Where

By Vicky Manning

Oh where, oh where is a dog called Bear?

Oh, where, oh where can he be?

He ran away because of me.

Oh, where, oh where can he be?

Did you ever see a bear, a bear?

By Vicky Manning

Did you ever see a bear, a bear, a bear?

Did you ever see a bear who thought he was a dog?

He’s this wide and this tall and he sleeps with a red ball.

Did you ever see a bear who thought he was a dog?

If you ever see a bear, a bear, a bear,

if you ever see a bear playing with a red ball.

Would tell him I miss him?

Would you tell him I love him?

if you ever see a bear playing with a red ball?
