The Bears Go Marching

(The tune should be obvious)

The Bears go marching one by one, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching one by one, huzzah! Huzzah!
Their swords are drawn to have some fun,
They only want to kill everyone-
And the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching two by two, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching two by two, huzzah! Huzzah!
Their swords are drawn, their axes  too-
Their only fear that they might be too few-
But the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching three by three, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching three by three, huzzah! Huzzah!
There is no doubt they’ll heroes be-
Their songs are sung by you and by me-
When the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching four by four, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching four by four, huzzah! Huzzah!
Their swords are drawn to settle a score,
They’ll kill all their foes, then kill them some more-
Thus the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching five by five, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching five by five, huzzah! Huzzah!
They’ll kill their foes with daggers and knives,
Then do it again, while they’re still alive-
And the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching six by six, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching six by six, huzzah! Huzzah!
In battles heavy, light or mixed,
There is no end to their bag of tricks –
When the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching seven by seven, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching seven by seven, huzzah! Huzzah!
Their swords are drawn to send foes to heaven –
‘Cause what the hell else rhymes with seven?
And the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching eight by eight, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching eight by eight, huzzah! Huzzah!
They’re singing songs to delay their fate
They’ll take their time but they won’t be late –
‘Cause the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching nine by nine, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching nine by nine, huzzah! Huzzah!
Their ranks are no more than a raggedy line
‘Cause they’ve had some premature victory wine-
But the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!

The Bears go marching ten by ten, huzzah! Huzzah!
The Bears go marching ten by ten, huzzah! Huzzah!
They’re off to war to prove their men
And tomorrow morning, they’ll sing this again/And until next war, this song’s at its end
But the Bears go marching
Off to the War today!
