Joan Armatrading – Eating The Bear lyrics

He had me down
But I put up a fight
I saw those teeth
And I groped for my knife
Big brown bear
With the juice from his mouth
He could taste my leg
And he thought he'd got me

But I am eating the bear

He lurked around
Cause he knew where I lived
I'm in the jungle
And he means to eat me
He means to eat me
He's a hungry bear
He touched my arm
And he thought he'd got me

But I am eating the bear

Some days the bear will eat you
Some days you'll eat the bear

And I am eating the bear

It's not just girls
He eats who he wants
He's big and strong
Fights dirty and mean
If you spill some blood
He'll smell you for miles
You better watch out
Cause he's right behind you
