A Forest” Song lyrics

Bear is sleeping; bear is sleeping
In the cave, in the cave.
I wonder when he’ll come out. I wonder when he’ll come out.
In the spring, in the spring.

Birds are flying; birds are flying
In the sky, in the sky.
I wonder when they’ll come back; I wonder when they’ll come back,
In the spring, in the spring.
