Bear To The Left

from What Kind Of Cat Are You?!

Traveling, traveling, traveling on
I bumped into my friend John
I said, "Hey John, which way should I go?"
He said, "Follow the animals, they all know....
You gotta BEAR to the left...."

But something was lacking, so I went back, and
he said, "Oh yeah -- I forgot:
You gotta BEAR to the left and SNAKE to the right...."

But something was lacking, so I went back, and
he said, "Oh yeah -- I forgot:
You gotta BEAR to the left and SNAKE to the right
WEASEL on down and DUCK outta sight...."

But something was lacking, so I went back, and
he said, "Oh yeah -- I forgot:
You gotta BEAR to the left and SNAKE to the right
WEASEL on down and DUCK outta sight
HORSE around, FLOUNDER about...."

But something was lacking, so I went back, and
he said, "Oh yeah -- I forgot:
You gotta BEAR to the left and SNAKE to the right
WEASEL on down and DUCK outta sight
HORSE around, FLOUNDER about
WORM your way in and BUG out!"

I STEERED straight home, I YAKKED on the phone
I WOLFED down my dinner, and I said so long!
