"Bears" as written by and Peter Seeger David Macon....
Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,
Bound for the mountain, bound for the mountain;
Over the hills, the fields, and the fountain,
Away to the chase, away, away!

Rover, Rover, see him, see him;
Rover, Rover, catch him, catch him;
Over the mountain, the hills, and the fountain,
Away to the chase, away!

Now all was set just right for the race;
The old hound dogs are ready for the chase;
The bears are a-bounding; the horns are a-sounding;
Over the trail that leads to the mountain,
Over the mountain, the hills, and the fountain,
Away to the chase, away, away!

Listen to the hound dogs' heavy bay sounding high over the way;
All night long till the break of dawn, merrily, the chase goes on;
Over the mountain, the hills, and the fountain,
Away to the chase, away!

Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,
Bound for the mountain, bound for the mountain,
Over the hills, the fields, and the fountain,
Away to the chase, away, away!
