Dancing Bear, Dancing Bear

 a Capsen child's counting song 




Dancing bear, dancing bear spin around

Moonstar lights touch the ground

Counting one, two

Guilt spun right


Dancing year, dancing year spin around

Bear claw clan comes to town

Counting three, four

Song spun woe


Dancing stars, dancing stars spin around

Bear claw man wears a crown

Spinning count five

Forget star light
