Bear gets shot at, bear not happy bear talks - bear is a beard

Hey over there said the disgruntled bear
To the man with a gun in his hands
Do you mean me said the man by the tree
His gun smoking beside where he stands

Hey over there said the disgruntled bear
To the man with a gun by his side
Do you mean I said the one eyed guy
With a gun that he’s trying to hide

Hey over there said the disgruntled bear
To the man with a gun in a bag
Do you mean one said the polite Englishman
As he waived a whiter than white, white flag

Hey over there said the disgruntled bear
To the man with a gun on his back
You can't possibly mean me as he ran from the tree
To the safety of the safest safe shack

 Hey over there said the disgruntled bear
To the man with a gun in a shed
I was just settling down said the man with a frown
Hoping a huge hope of keeping his head

Anyone in? said the bear with a grin
To the man hiding himself inside
Please may I enter this human safe centre?
A talking bear, how weird, the man cried

So the bear wandered in with the man looking grim
But the worried man needn't have feared
For the bear could talk much like everyday folk
Cos he was human with a huge bushy beard
