Forty Bears

©2014 Velvetone/Elbmusikverlag

Out of the downtown cave,
Groovin’ on the countryside lawn
Shake ‘em booty in their baggy pants
From dusk till dawn

Lickin’ sweet honey from their rusty cans
Gettin’ rid of them nasty ants
Singin’ Yankee Doodle with their Southern friends
All night long.

Wanda’n’Dolly
Hank’n’Buck
Kitty, Patsy‘n’Emmylou
Shake them booty too…

Forty bears – get together on their sacred ground
Forty bears – sharing with folks what’s been found
Forty bears – harmonize to their sacred sounds
Forty bears – since forty years.

Sway from side to side
Hum and strum their favorite songs
Bumpin‘ furry tails in a Hula dance
Till the early mornin‘

Jimmy’n’Johnny
Rose’n’June
Eddie, Gene and Jerry Lee
Shake them booty too…

Forty bears – get together on their sacred ground
Forty bears – sharing with folks what’s been found
Forty bears – harmonize to their sacred sounds
Forty bears – since forty years.

Out of the downtown cave
Groovin’ on the countryside lawn
Shake ‘em booty in their baggy pants
From dusk till dawn.

Forty bears – get together on their sacred ground
Forty bears – sharing with folks what’s been found
Forty bears – harmonize to their sacred sounds
Forty bears – since forty years!

Fuzzy Brown

2010 Velvetone

Sweet tooth baby bear longing for some honey
Plodding through the woods peeping up the boring old trees
Climbing up a birch tree grabbing at the beehive
Tearing down the whole branch steppin’ on the late king bee
Slightly overweight
Mostly well-behaved
By all means a problem bear

Talkin’ ‘bout a
Fuzzy brown
Eight foot
Berry pickin’
Goat kickin’
Honey lickin’
Knockin’ down beehives
Kind of a problem bear

Grown-up Fuzzy bear wading in the water
Staring at the crawfish waiting for a big fat trout
Slipping on a wet stone juggling not to fall
Crashin’ in a beaver dam another Fuzzy big black out
Slightly overweight
Mostly well-behaved
By all means a problem bear

Talkin’ ‘bout a
Fuzzy brown
Eight foot
Berry pickin’
Goat kickin’
Honey lickin’
Knockin down beehives
Kind of a problem bear

Grey-haired senior bear no pockets for no money
Tempted by a sweet smell heading for a general store
Breaking through the window belly gettin’ stuck
His new suit’s fittin’ tight trouble he will make no more
Slightly overweight
Mostly well-behaved
By all means a problem bear

Talkin’ ‘bout a
Fuzzy brown
Eight foot
Berry pickin’
Goat kickin’
Honey lickin’
Knockin down beehives
Kind of a
Eight foot
Berry pickin’
Goat kickin’
Honey lickin’
Knockin down beehives
Kind of a problem bear

Violent Man

Köster-Lüers-Goodman / Velvetone

I wish I was six foot ten and a violent man,
strong like a bear with an iron hand.
Can’t explain, they don’t understand,
you look out all across the land !
I wanna be a gate crashin‘, loser bashin‘, fool slashin‘,
meanest, toughest son of a gun.

Anyone’ll tell I’m a peaceful guy,
some say weak, wouldn’t hurt a fly.
Sometimes the rage rises up in me,
still when the cure is plain to see :
love your sister, love your brother,
everybody care for each other.
But pop goes the shit and out come the fools,
That’ll be the time when my strong arm rules.

Don’t give a fuck ‚bout socialization.
Don’t gimme psychological explanation.
Always a reason why they act that way,
they’re too close, they ain’t makin‘ my day.
I wanna kick you out the door,
you ain’t gonna mess with me no more.
Say your prayers you dusty farts,
now’s the time the rumble starts.

There’s a whole lot more than black and white,
a third way between wrong and right.
Feel so tired, helpless and small.
Just one way to get along with them all :
love your gun like your brother,
I shoot one, you shoot the other.
Pop goes my piece, end up in jail,
that’ll be the day when my strong arm fails.

I wish I was six foot ten and a violent man,
strong like a bear with an iron hand.
Can’t explain, they don’t understand,
you look out all across the land !
I wanna be a gate crashin‘,
loser bashin‘,
fool slashin‘,
jerk smashin‘,
redneck bashin‘,
ass hole clashin‘,
meanest, toughest son of a gun.
