The Bear Chase

The Limelighters

    Spoken: Attention, campers, today's activity will be a Bear Chase!

Banjo intro

Chorus
Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,
Bound for the mountain, bound for the mountain;
O'er the hills, the fields, the fountain,
Away to the chase! Away, away!

The bears are bounding, the horns are sounding
Over the trail that leads to the mountain
O'er the hills, the fields, the fountain,
Away to the chase! Away, away!

Rover, Rover, see 'em, see 'em!
Rover, Rover, catch 'em, catch 'em!

Chorus

Now we're set just right for thr race!
The old hound dog is ready for the chase!

Chorus

Spoken: I cannot understand why all of the guests are required to go out chasing a sweaty old bear!

Listen to the hound dog's heavy bay,
Sounding high along the way!

Chorus

Spoken: I don't know how much longer I can keep up the pace. There must be a comfort station somewhere!

Chorus

Spoken: Are you aware of the dreadful ragweed problem here?! And you know what it does to my sinus!

Chorus

All night long, 'till break of dawn,
Merrily we roll along!

Chorus

Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,
Bound for the mountain, bound for the mountain;

Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,
Bound for the mountain, bound for the mountain;

Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,
Bound for the mountain, bound for the mountain;

Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,
Bound for the mountain, bound for the mountain;

O'er the hills, the fields, the fountain,
O'er the hills, the fields, the fountain,
Away to the chase! Away to the chase!
Away to the chase, away!
