The Lyrics

Everybody, now, take a seat.
We got some ursines; you're in for a treat.
We make 'em stand up on two feet;
Let in some dogs. . .see who gets beat.
We're bear baitin', we're bear baitin',
We're bear baitin', we're bear baitin'.

It's a big party—we watch 'em fight.
The dogs are agile and bark and bite.
But the bears' claws might just rip those dogs in two.
Place a bet, take a chance—you could win or lose
In bear baiting, in bear baitin',
In bear baiting, in bear baitin'.

One little dog's got a red mess on
His head right above where his ear is gone.
Another dog bit a bear claw away.
Who's gonna win? Too early to say.
In bear baitin', in bear baitin',
In bear baitin', in bear baitin'.

Then the animals got a clue
They joined together; here's what ensued.
Your count of teeth is 32,
But theirs are long and sharp and can chew you.

Their fare's waitin', there's no escapin'.
They're masticatin'; we are bear satin'.
