High on the mountain what do you see
Bear tracks, bear tracks lookin' back at me
You better get your rifles boys before it's too late
The bear's got a little pig and headed through the gate

He's big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
Doin' ninety miles an hour takin' thirty feet a jump
He never been caught and he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

I saved up my money and I bought me some bees
They started makin' honey way up in the trees
I chopped down the tree but my honey's all gone
Ole Slew Foot's done made himself at home

He's big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
Doin' ninety miles an hour takin' thirty feet a jump
He never been caught and he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

Winter's comin' on and it's twenty below
The river's froze over so where can he go
We'll chase him in the gully and we'll run him in the well
And shoot him at the bottom and we'll listen to him yell

He's big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
Doin' ninety miles an hour takin' thirty feet a jump
He never been caught and he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me
