"The Bear Band Serenade" is a song that Henry sings at the start of the Country Bear Jamboree show at the Disney theme parks.

In the song, Henry introduces each member of the show's house band, The Five Bear Rugs (Zeke, Zeb, Ted, Fred, and Tennessee), who each perform a solo on their respective instruments when introduced and spotlighted.

Lyrics

The Bear Band bears will play now
In the good ol' key of G
Zeke and Zeb and Ted and Fred
And a bear named Tennessee

Zeke's a-twangin' on the banjo
And a-tappin' with his feet.
While bangin' on a dishpan
With a real ol' country beat

Zeb's a-sawin' on the fiddle
With a crooked hickory bow
When the spirit moves that bruin,
He can make that fiddle go

Brother Ted is on the corn jug
Now, I mean that bear can blow
He also plays the washboard
With a handle of a hoe

And big Fred's playin' mouth harp.
He plays it kinda sad
He never took a lesson,
He just picked it up from Dad

And li'l ol' Tennessee Bear
Is a-featured on the thang
Sounds just like a guitar,
But it's only got one string

So clap your hands and
Stomp your feet and
Try to keep right with 'em
One sure thing the Bear Band's got
Is real ol' country rhythm

Yeah, clap your hands and
Stomp your feet and
Try to keep right with 'em
One sure thing the Bear Band's got
Is real ol' country rhythm

Trivia

  • Some recordings include an outtake where Henry instead mistakenly sings, "The Bear Bear band will play now..."
