There was a novelty song sometime around 1964 and 1965 called, "Look out for the Bears" --or something like that but I've tried Googling it and I can never find it. It had one line in the song that I remember that went, "If you're swimming in your pool, don't loose your cool, and fall down and get drowned by a water bear". and the whole song was about different kinds of bears that could GET YOU if you didn't watch out for the bears.

I've had "Brothers in Arms" in 3 different formats: LP, CD, and Cassette. I hated cassettes. Another song I liked was "Once upon a time in the West". I saw Mark Knoffler play once in small club. Great show.

That is an amazing album.

This was my sister's first record, a 45 RPM, ever.

She played it all day, every day.

They couldn't make this record today.  The hippie Marxist's heads would explode because: racism.

A white guy cannot sing about Indians, er, native Americans, uh, indigenous peoples.

I spent many, many hours as a lad trying to duplicate Mr. Bilk's tone and phrasing on my clarinet.

I think I was round ten or eleven.

Must have driven my parents and sister crazy.  :biggrin:

My mother used to sing this a lot along with Red Wing, Hiawatha, and other songs of the area.  She used to be a singer when my father met her.  This was commonly heard in our home.
