Smokey the Bear

Lyrics

With a Ranger's hat and shovel
And a pair of dungarees,
You will find him in the forest
Always sniffin' at the breeze.
People stop and pay attention
When he tells 'em to beware,
'Cause ev'rybody knows that
He's the Fire Prevention Bear.

Smokey the Bear, Smokey the Bear.
Prowlin' and a growlin' and a sniffin' the air.
He can find a fire before it starts to flame.
That's why they call him Smokey,
That was how he got his name.

You can take a tip from Smokey
That there's nothin' like a tree.
'Cause they're good for kids to climb in
And they're beautiful to see,
You just have to look around you
And you'll find it's not a joke,
To see what you'd be missin'
If they all went up in smoke.

Smokey the Bear, Smokey the Bear.
Prowlin' and a growlin' and a sniffin' the air.
He can find a fire before it starts to flame.
That's why they call him Smokey,
That was how he got his name.

You can camp upon his doorstep
And he'll make you feel at home;
You can run and hunt and ramble
Anywhere you care to roam.
He will let you take his honey
And pretend he's not so smart,
But don't you harm his trees
For he's a Ranger in his heart.

Smokey the Bear, Smokey the Bear.
Prowlin' and a growlin' and a sniffin' the air.
He can find a fire before it starts to flame.
That's why they call him Smokey,
That was how he got his name.

If you've ever seen the forest
When a fire is running wild,
And you love the things within it
Like a mother loves her child,
Then you know why Smokey tells you
When he sees you passing through,
"Remember...please be careful....
Its the least that you can do."

Smokey the Bear, Smokey the Bear.
Prowlin' and a growlin' and a sniffin' the air.
He can find a fire before it starts to flame.
That's why they call him Smokey,
That was how he got his name.

Was it Google SketchUp that you used to do your great drawings?The shinippg containers idea from Joe Kral would work really well I think; and they're very cheap to buy/use/work with.

I stated singing this one day but, couldn't remember all the words. My husband looked at me like I was losing it. Have to show him the song I learned as a child. Going to post this at our cottage in the woods so everyone that goes up there see it and helps prevent forest fires. Thanks, Wendy (64)
