They’re black, they’re brown, they’re up, they’re down
They’re in, they’re out, they’re all about
They’re far, they’re near, they’re gone, they’re here
They’re quick and slick, they’re insincere

Beware, beware, be a very wary bear
A Heffalump or Woozle is very confusel
Beware, beware, be a very wary bear
A Heffalump or Woozle’s very sly, very sly, sly, sly
