Now, there's a title! There are so many ways to continue this phrase, Once upon a time in a wee little forest there were three bears, cha, cha, cha. One was a Papa Bear and one was a Mama Bear and one was a Wee Bear, cha, cha. One day they went walking in the wee woods a talkin and along, along, along came a little girl with gold hair and her name was Goldie Locks, and up upon the door she knocks, but no one was there, yes, no one was there. So, she walked right in and sat right down, she didn't care, no she didn't care. And when she got tired she went upstairs. Home, home, home came the three bears. "Someone's been eating my porridge," said the Papa Bear, "Someone's been eating my porridge," said the Mama Bear. "Hey, bobaree bear," said the little Wee Bear, "someone has broken my chair." Crash! Just them Goldie Locks woke up, broke up the story and beat it out of there. Good-bye, bye, bye said the Papa Bear, good-bye, bye, bye said the Mama Bear. "Hey bobaree bear," said the little Wee Wear. So ends the story of the three little bears!
And there you have it! Once upon a time!
