[intro]
|G   D  |A      |G    D  |A       

       |G    D         |A       A/G A  
Did you ever sleep in a bear pit
    |G     D        |A          
With apple cores and mice along
       |G    D     |A       A/G A
Did you ever lay on ice and grit
  |G            D              |A           |       A/G A |
Or search for a place where the wind was gone

Did you ever tramp up endless hills
Past cosy homes with secret beds
Did you ever dream of a suicide pill
And wake up cold to the smell of bread

     |G                 |D/F#      
Well, I have slept there badly twice
    |Em7                 |D              Dsus4 D
I've shared my straw with scratching mice      and
|G                  |D/F#
Although you'll find some deep brown hair
    |Em7                   |        
I'll tell you something for nothing
      Em9  Em7|A/C#    |D           |G      |Gmaj7   
There ain't no bears in there (cache cache)
      G6    |A/C#   |Bm          |Cadd9+5  |Cadd9+b5 |Cadd9 |     |
Not a single bear in there (cache cache)

Did you ever have to make a draw 
For a hard wooden bench or a bed of stone
Did you ever jimmy a stable door and scare the horse to escape the snow

Did you ever invade a neat little yard 
And wake up the kids who hope for ghosts
Did you ever cause their dogs to bark 
At guests to curse their noisy hosts

Don't jump in expecting fun
Don't swagger in there with your elephant gun
Don't enter the cage with wavin' chairs
'Cause I'll tell you something for nothing
There ain't no bears in there (cache cache)
Not a single bear in there (cache cache)

[bridge]
       |A    A/G A     |A    D/A D/A D/A  
Did you ever pass the police at work 
A  |A         A/G A     |A    D/A D/A D/A 
And hope that they might take you in
       |A    A/G A     |A     D/A D/A D/A  
Did you ever wonder why music hurts
A   |A       A/G   A  |A       D/A D/A D/A
When someone plays it aloof to sin
       |G                  |F6/9
Did you ever believe that a smile could cure
 |G                  |Fadd9
A happy face keep you warm at night?
        |G             |Fadd9
Were you ever fooled by laughter's lure
|G       Gsus4         |G         |A        Asus4 |A     |
 Only to find that they laughed in spite?

Don't jump in expecting fun
Don't swagger in there with your elephant gun
Don't enter the cage with wavin' chairs
'Cause I'll tell you something for nothing
There ain't no bears in there (cache cache)
Not a single bear in there (cache cache)

[interlude; verse pattern]

Did you ever finally find a place
A soft warm bed in a room with flowers
And when you finally laid down your face
   |G         D         ||Cadd9+5 Cadd9+b5 |Cadd9 Cadd9+b5 ||  %  |
You found you slept for a hundred hours  
         |  %     |Cadd9+5 Cadd9+b5 |Cadd9    
A hundred hours

              |A/C#    |D           |G      |Gmaj7 |
There ain't no bears in there (cache cache)
Not a single bear in there (cache cache)
No bears in there (cache cache)
There ain't no bears in there (cache cache)
            |A/C#   |Bm          |Cadd9+5 |Cadd9+b5 |Cadd9 |Cadd9+b5
Not a single bear in there (cache cache)

|A/C#  (A) |D  |A/C#    A |D
