BJ And The Bear Lyrics

Hey there where ya goin
Not exactly knowin
Who says you have to call just one place home
He’s goin everywhere
BJ McKay and his best friend Bear

He just keeps on movin
Ladies keep improvin
Every day is better than the last
New dreams and better scenes
And best of all I don’t pay property tax

Yeah that’s what I’m going to do one of these days Bear
I’m going to teach you how to sing how’d you’d like that kid huh

Rollin down to Dallas
My wheels provide my palace
I’m off to New Orleans or who knows where
Places new and ladies too
I’m BJ McKay and this is my best friend Bear
