Do like the bears do (Grizzly business)
David Brown & George Smith

This time of year is cold and grey
I eat food to compensate
I'm a misery, a chiselly, grizzly bear
I think I might hibernate
If only I could find a mate
Someone fair to come and share my lair

And do like the bears do
Sleep through winter - wake in spring
Do like the bears do
Go in fat and come out thin
Do like the bears do
Hug all night - hug all day
Do like the bears do
Rising on the first of May
And in the mood for love

(Grizzly business)

Away from all that wind and rain
We'd wake up when the sun comes back again
When all the leaves on the trees are green and lush
In our bed of leaves and straw
Cosy as a kitten in a knicker drawer
We'd miss all that crappy Christmas stuff

And do like the bears do
Sleep through winter - wake in spring
Do like the bears do
Go in fat and come out thin
Do like the bears do
Hug all night - hug all day
Do like the bears do
Rising on the first of May
And in the mood for love

(Grizzly business)

No news bulletins at all
Don't have to worry 'bout things abroad
Living in a world of endless dreams
We'd hold on to each other tight
Every hour of a four month night
Stuck together like the layers of a custard cream
