lyrics

Camping out in the woods, huddled up in a ring around the fire.
Dinner suspended simmering, there's a hush a hush in the air.
Just cricks and cracks in that ink black night.
Pale flickering arms of trees that sway without a breeze.

Big Brown Bear. Big Brown Bear, took the face off my daddy dear.
Big Brown Bear. Big Brown Bear, took the face off my daddy dear.

Go into my momma's room. Poppa's sitting up in bed.
But I won't be comforted, cause I know he's dead.
Show me sugar. I like spice.
Tell me, give me everything nice.

I'm never gonna close my eyes. I'm never gonna close my eyes.

Gonna go back in, it's gonna be all different. Wear won't get what he wants this time.
Gotta fight it off, or reason with it. His fur's so dark and heartless.

Big Brown Bear. Big Brown Bear, took the face off my daddy dear.
Big Brown Bear. Big Brown Bear, took the face off my daddy dear.

Go into my momma's room. Poppa's sitting up in bed.
But I won't be comforted, cause I know he's dead.
Show me sugar. I like spice.
Tell me, give me everything nice.

I'm never gonna close my eyes. I'm never gonna close my eyes.
