Grizzly Mobile

Liner Notes

Life has been intervening, but I had started a serious song. Then I drove by a shop with this name a couple of days ago and this happened. Think bad advertising jingles. Quick take, a bit rough. #silly

Lyrics

Grizzly Mobile, it’s the place
A bear gets what she needs
Cell phone opened by her face
New videos on her feeds

Downloading the latest apps
BlueBerry and HoneyPot
HikerFind shows meals on maps
Each backpack a moving spot

If lonely, there’s BearCupid
A bear can swipe right or left
For one she thinks well suited
Who will not leave her bereft

Grizzly Mobile, it’s the place
A bear gets what she needs
Cell phone opened by her face
New videos on her feeds

SalmonRunIII, the latest craze
Now including bass and trout!
Bears give it amazing praise
Fish, well they have their doubts

WaltzingWith for ursine dances
That a lady bear can approve
She has time to take her chances
See who has the best grooves

Grizzly Mobile, it’s the place
A bear gets what she needs
Cell phone opened by her face
New videos on her feeds

CaveSleep for BearBnBs
When it’s hibernation time
Warm places, she won’t freeze
Watch her TV shows on Prime

Growler for that lazy bear
The polars choose SealHole
WaterFall to wash bear hair
Might also want PorridgeBowl

Grizzly Mobile, come on down
Smart phones for every bear
Spectacled, panda or brown
Sun, sloth or black, we’re here!

Half price phone for your cubs
And we give the best bear hugs!

Absolutely delightful and so much fun! Such creative and clever lyrics - so many wonderful apps like HikerFind SealHole and WaltzingWith (nice nod to a classic) and love those last two lines! Very enjoyable music and performance by you both!

This was hilarious with some fabulous lines. Brilliantly imagined and a fun tune too.

This is my favourite stanza:

"SalmonRunIII, the latest craze
Now including bass and trout!
Bears give it amazing praise
Fish, well, they have their doubts"

As others have said - this is a perfect campfire song.

This is just too, too silly. Definitely a keeper--make sure you bring it out at the filk circles!

you are laying the groundwork for the day of the animals. get in there on the ground floor and watch your fotrune grow after the people have gone and the bears take over their computer. youve got the apps for it. put some adds in the yellowstone press, ahd hurry, it wont be long now.
