Yogi Bear Theme Song Lyrics
Yogi Bear is smarter than the average bear
Yogi Bear is always in the ranger’s hair
At a picnic table you will find him there
Stuffing down more goodies than the average bear
He will sleep till noon but before it’s dark
He’ll have every picnic basket that’s in Jellystone Park
Yogi has it better than a millionaire
That’s because he’s smarter than the average bear
