Waltzing with Bears

Words and Music by: Dr. Seuss

I went upstairs in the middle of the night,
I tiptoed in and I turned on the light,
And to my surprise, there was no one in sight,
My Uncle Walter goes waltzing at night!

                CHORUS:
                He goes wa-wa-wa-wa, wa-waltzing with bears,
                Raggy bears, shaggy bears, baggy bears too.
                There's nothing on earth Uncle Walter won't do,
                So he can go waltzing, wa-wa-wa-waltzing,
                So he can go waltzing, waltzing with bears!

I gave Uncle Walter a new coat to wear,
When he came home he was covered with hair,
And lately I've noticed several new tears,
I'm sure Uncle Walter goes waltzing with bears!

                CHORUS:

We told Uncle Walter that he should be good,
And do all the things that we said he should,
But I know that he'd rather be out in the wood,
I'm afraid we might lose Uncle Walter for good!

                CHORUS:

We begged and we pleaded, Oh please won't you stay!"
We managed to keep him at home for a day,
But the bears all barged in, and they took him away!
Now he's waltzing with pandas, and he can't understand us,
And the bears all demand at least one dance a day!
