Bjørnen sover, bjørnen sover,
i sitt lune hi.
Den er ikke farlig, bare vi går varlig.
Men man kan jo, men man kan jo,
aldri være trygg!
The bear is sleeping, the bear is sleeping,
in his warm den.
It is not dangerous, but we are going to be careful.
But you can, but you can,
never be safe!
Students stand in a circle on the floor. One student (the “Bear”) stands/sits in the middle and closes his/her eyes while students sing the song and dance in place. On the last word students freeze, and the “Bear” opens his/her eyes and looks for students who are moving. If they move, they are “out,” and they sit down. After about a minute of looking for moving students, the “Bear” closes his/her eyes and spins around while pointing: I count 1…2…3. The person the “Bear” is pointing to (It must be a person who is still standing and who is not “out.”) when I say “3” becomes the next “Bear.”
