The Lyrics

...i wrote this to apologize for killing off yogi the bear in one of my parodies last week...
yogi the bear
yogi the bear
thousands have been howlin'
since i killed him back there
he's come back to life
and established his past fame
i'm sorry i killed yogi
yes, i'm really so ashamed

when the ranger shot ol' yogi and he brought him to his knees
many thought that it was horrid and they said i was a sleaze
i was sensin' some frustration so i thought i'd clear the air
now everybody knows, i've given back your favorite bear

yogi the bear
yogi the bear
thousands have been howlin'
since i killed him back there
he's come back to life
and established his past fame
i'm sorry i killed yogi
yes, i'm really so ashamed

no, there's nothing wrong with yogi, he's as healthy as can be
lunchin' tourists, he still spies on and he always eats for free
i'm sorry if i shocked you, it was such an awful joke
for laughs, i was a-fishin', when i had ol' yogi croak

yogi the bear
yogi the bear
thousands have been howlin'
since i killed him back there
he's come back to life
and established his past fame
i'm sorry i killed yogi
yes, i'm really so ashamed

there were protests at my doorstep, they were picketin' my home
even leavin' was a gamble, i had rocks tossed at my dome
i was fearful for my honey, she was payin' for my 'art'
cause she had to walk the gaunlet, every time she would depart

yogi the bear
yogi the bear
thousands have been howlin'
since i killed him back there
he's come back to life
and established his past fame
i'm sorry i killed yogi
yes, i'm really so ashamed

i have come to rue the chorus, where poor yogi was defiled
cause it made the readers livid, yes, it really drove them wild
and i've come to the conclusion it was wrong of me to do
so now, if you allow, i'll give this bruin back to you

yogi the bear
yogi the bear
thousands have been howlin'
since i killed him back there
he's come back to life
and established his past fame
i'm sorry i killed yogi
yes, i'm really so ashamed

I'd better give you a five, because it gets late early out there. (Whoops, right rating, wrong Yogi.)
