Inside is a bear,

Now he comes out, To get some fresh air.

Bears climbing stairs.
(make climbing motion)
Bears sitting on chairs.

Bears washing hairs.

(hold up five fingers)
And the little one said,“ Roll over! Roll over!”

(hold up fist)
And the little one said,
“ Good night!”

He sniffed at the breeze,
And he listened for bees,
(cup hand to ear)
And would you believe it?
He even climbed trees!
