C. Shells – “Just for Fun!”  CD/Cassette


1.  My Uncle Walter goes waltzing with bears

     It’s a most unbearable state of affairs

     Every Saturday night he creeps down the back stairs

     Sneaks out of the house and goes waltzing with bears


CHORUS: He goes wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, waltzing with bears

                 Raggy bears, baggy bears, shaggy bears, too

                 And there’s nothing on earth Uncle Walter won’t do

                 So he can go waltzing, wa, wa, wa, waltzing

                 So he can go waltzing, go waltzing with bears


2.  I went to his room in the middle of the night

     I tiptoed inside and I turned on the light

     But to my despair he was nowhere in sight

     ‘Cause my Uncle Walter goes waltzing with bears


3.  I made Uncle Walter a new coat to wear

     But when he comes in it’s all covered with hairs

     And lately I’ve noticed there’s several new tears

     My Uncle Walter’s been waltzing with bears


4.  We asked Uncle Walter, “Why won’t you be good?

     And do all the things that we say that you should?”

     We know that you’d rather be out in the woods

     We’re afraid that we’ll lose you, we’ll lose you for good


5.  We begged and we pleaded, “Oh, please won’t you stay?”

     And managed to keep him at home for the day

     But the bears all barged in and they took him away

     Now he’s dancing with pandas and we don’t understand them

     But the bears all demand at least one dance a day
