The Lyrics

Part of my "Run Away" self-challenge. I'm not really a fan of "the villain was right all along" type deconstructions, but I'm also not really a fan of Yogi Bear, so the scales have tipped...
Hmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm, mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm

On a camping trip or on a hike (on a hike)
People don't want a bear to steal their food (steal their food, steal their food)
Don't eat people? Well, how nice for you (nice for you)
I made a point, boy, you sure missed it wide, you missed it wide, you missed it wide
And don't be a liar (be a liar, be a liar)
Can see the baskets that are far from full (far from full)
A bad impression for your son Boo-Boo
Nephew? Young cousin? Dude, I don't care, right, I don't care, right, I don't care, right

Look, the main point is you and your grand theft of food
Oh, Yogi Bear, you're an asshole to the ranger
All he wants you to do is forage for your food
Oh, Yogi Bear, you're an asshole to the ranger
Asshole to the ranger

Nothing that proves wild fruit is out of sight (out of sight)
Getting suspicious, 'specially with that tie (what's with that tie?)
Less a quirk, more of a trophy for you
And where did Boo-Boo get that bow tie, get that bow tie, get that bow tie?

Look, I'm not scared of you, still hate your theft of food
Oh, Yogi Bear, you're an asshole to the ranger
Do what he's asking you, stop stealing people's food
Oh, Yogi Bear, you're an asshole to the ranger
Asshole to the ranger
Asshole to the ranger
Asshole, yeah, yeah, (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh)

Look, you seem smart, so you (ooh-ooh) must have some ethics, dude (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Oh, Yogi Bear, you're an asshole to the ranger
You can make traps, but you don't know what's right, do you?
Oh, Yogi Bear, you're an asshole to the ranger
An asshole, an asshole (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
An asshole, an asshole (asshole to the ranger)
An asshole, an asshole (asshole to the ranger)
An asshole, an asshole (asshole to the ranger)

While I do really like this song, I wish the followup single "How Do You Sleep?" had been a far bigger hit. The title line of "How do you sleep when you lie to me?" hits you in the gut with its directness so much that you almost to groove to the fantastic beat.
