Crossing a lake 50 years ago my girl and me, we nearly met our deaths…
Always (every year on the same day) we use to sing the ballad RUNNING BEAR (first released 1959 by Johnny Preston).
Enjoy the YouTube cartoon video clip telling the story for kids:

Running Bear!…listened to this over and over…I was quite young!
Loved this song way back, Frizz. What a fun video! Sad ending though. 😕
