Smokey the Bear was an actual Bear Cub found in a burned tree after a Forest Fire.and became the Forest Fire Fighters Mascot originally.
Go back. The Forest Service has forgotten it's own history. The mascot's name is Smokey THE Bear. The lyrics we used to sing, in the '40s & '50s are:
Smokey the Bear, Smokey the Bear
Prowlin' and a growlin' and a sniffin' the air
He can find a fire before it starts to flame
That's why they call him Smokey,
That's how he got his name.
There are more lyrics, unfortunately, those are all that I recall. As I recall, this is the chorus.
