Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sing in the Spring (Utah Phillips)
I had a bear who sang the blues
I had a bear who growled the blues
He hocked his pants and he hocked his shoes,
He hocked everything but his press reviews.

On Rosalie Sorells Grammy nominated STRANGERS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY she does this song with a bunch of Twin Cities pickers with these extra verses;

Once I had a brontosaurus
A brontosauros name of Horace,
When we play golf he'll caddie for us,
And he likes to sing tenor in the clubhouse chorus.

Once I had a lettle shrimp,
An inky, dinky, stinky shrimp,
He tried to make love to a blimp,
And now he's walking with a limp.
