One Tuesday whilst mending his shoe
Little George wandered into the zoo
and there he had found
something left on the ground
-the keys to the bear cage...Yahoo!
Peering over his shoulder, right-left!
he stole inside the cage like a theft,
found the bears fast asleep
still alert did he creep,
or of life he would soon be bereft!
Now I'll let you in on a thing,
outside the zookeeper did sing...
"Oh damndable day!
and I've lost the bear key off me ring!"
Fearing the zoo be destroyed,
he did something he rarely enjoyed
he set his bear traps
baited with ginger snaps
If it failed he would be unemployed!
Now back in the cage George had found
a sum of loose fur on the ground
and with sap from the trees
he applied it with ease
now he looked like a bear - without sound...
What fun and what glee he would make!
The children around him would quake
when they saw the "bear" George
On their bones he would gourge
Don't go George! Its a mistake!
In the bushes zookeeper did wait,
when saw a "bear" open the gate
and saunter out of the cage
George pretended to rage
oh no! What will be this bears fate?
Zookeeper popped up, as to lure
George pounced so to claim his first score
landing square on the trap
it snapped shut with a clap!
Oh the curses and swears he let roar!
Fearing this noise the "bear" made,
zookeeper came forth with a spade
and with many a whack
'bout his head and his back
poor George- he was starting to fade
There lying in blood, black and blue
in a bear suit that really looked true
as zookeeper, that mizer
gave a big tranquilizer
he cursed, best he could, on the zoo
