Have you ever considered a bear hug?

    Does the thought of it make you feel scared?

I’m sure that all bears are quite friendly

    And it’s we who are not quite prepared.


It’s a pity you think them ferocious,

    For I’m sure it is not how they feel.

They think it is YOU who’s unfriendly -

    And perhaps overlooked their appeal.


Have you ever considered a bear hug?

    No, not with your soft teddy bear -

With a grizzly or a soft cuddly black bear -

    The sort that could show you some care.


Give some thought to this subject this evening,

    And, with me, you will think it is true:

A bear hug might be what you’re missing -

    And those bears will be missing YOU too.
