Eggy > Songs > Backyard Bear > Lyrics


Think I'd like to dig a den, once I’ve got the goods
I’ve rambled, ambled, sulked, and swam, in these waning woods.
Please don't banish your rubbish far, I'll most gladly share
The neighborhood is a safer place with a bulky backyard bear

Smoked steak on a can of flames, how’s that branch of birch?
I’m bouncy like a frog for flies, can I taste your work?
My daddy’s father was less polite, I’m my mother's cub
I take my meat medium rare, I’ve got regard for my grub

One man's trash is tasty treasure
One thick woods is a place for pleasure
Symbiosis makes a simple summer
A backyard bear is a being of wonder

Old world, but the modern kind, I wear a vegan coat
Real fur, although no one died, it’s just an anecdote
Who loves sugar like a cavity? Pass your bag of sweets
Halloween and I needn’t hide: Hello, trick or treat

Winter naps are like a weekend- Friday like the fall
Sunday evening brings some relief, but by Monday comes the haul
Come catch me on your evening stroll, I’ll share what I retrieve
Would you share just a bit of yours, and try and act neighborly



One man's trash is tasty treasure

One thick woods is a place for pleasure

Symbiosis makes a simple summer

A backyard bear is a being of wonder
