lyrics

There’s a little red ship on the wild Arctic seas
Where the winds blow so cold you can feel your blood freeze
But up on deck five you hear the sound of guitars
Up in the Polar Bear, bonjour and hola there
Up in the Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
Way up in the Polar Bear Bar

Here comes Susan Adie, she runs a tight show
She gets into the malbec and anything goes
And Guy Esperon with his head in a jar
He drinks in the Polar Bear, bonjour and hola there
Up in the Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
Way up in the Polar Bear Bar

Now old Scobie Pye, he never gets out
He’s working on engines day in and day out
But under the bell every night he’s a star
He holds court in the Polar Bear, bonjour and hola there
Up in the Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
Way up in the Polar Bear Bar

Now big Phillip Hunter, he’s as chill as they come
He’s smooth in a kayak and cool with a gun
But out on the dance floor he’s fit to be tarred
He gets down in the Polar Bear, bonjour and hola there
Up in the Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
Way up in the Polar Bear Bar

And here’s Mr. Morgan, we don’t know what he’s on
But he can dance the merengue from dusk until dawn
His interest in knickers is somewhat bizarre
And he peeps in the Polar Bear, bonjour and hola there
Up in the Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
Way up in the Polar Bear Bar

There’s no greater hunter than Mario Spring
When he gets on a scent he can track anything
Brunettes and redheads, they don’t get very far
When he hunts in the Polar Bear, bonjour and hola there
Up in the Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
Way up in the Polar Bear Bar

These three pretty fraulines, so sweet and so dear
But they can tear up the town when they get on the beer
From Oslo to Svalbard, hear them shout Wunderbar
Sie trinken in der Polar Bear, bonjour und hola there
Up in the Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
Way up in the Polar Bear Bar

There’s many fine comp’nies that sail the salt seas
Noble Caledonia and Old Silver Seas
Big Hurtigruten and don’t forget Quark
But they don’t have a Polar Bear, bonjour and hola there
Don’t have a Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
No they don’t have a Polar Bear Bar

Tomorrow it’s over, it’s the end of the cruise
The disembarkation and luggage pull blues
So come all you big drinkers, let’s say au revoir
We’ll meet in the Polar Bear, bonjour and hola there
Up in the Polar Bear Bar, Bear Bar
We’ll get lit in the Polar Bear Bar
