Young Folk The polar bear song
 
     
 

I'll sing of a polar bear fearless and bold
He never gets hot and he never gets cold
He lives at the poles where cold weather occurs
And he lumbers around wrapped in plenty of furs

Chorus
Too-ra-lee, oh it's nice
I like all the snow and I like all the ice

I'll sing of a polar bear fearless and bold
He never gets hot and he never gets cold
He dives in the water with a splosh and a splish
Catching silvery fish, they're his favourite dish

Chorus
I'll sing of a polar bear fearless and bold
He never gets hot and he never gets cold
He slip and he slides and he thinks it's great fun
Till he trips on a penguin, and land on his .... bottom!

Chorus

I’ll sing of a polar bear fearless and bold
Who never gets hot, and he never gets cold
He slips and he slides and he thinks it’s great fun
‘Till he trips on a penguin and lands of his ... bottom

Chorus

Collected from a BBC schools programme 1979-ish, last two verses added by grandchildren.

And a verse suggested by Barbara Williams, origin unknown:

Now we poor unfortunates live in a clime
that calls for at least three full suits at a time.
A thick one and a thin one for days that are hot
And a medium waight for the days that are not.

And another verse from the WWW:

The crocodile lives in the tropical belt
And neither the cold nor the heat ever felt,
Because in the winter his summers begin,
And the rest of the year he wears crocodile skin.
Toora lee, toora lay,
And the rest of the year he wears crocodile skin.

From a BBC children's programme many years ago.
[Key D]
