Teddy Bear Song

Teddy Bear Song

Barbara Fairchild

Words and Music by Don Earl and Nick Nixon



(peak Billboard position # 32 in 1973)



I wish I had button eyes and a red felt nose

A shaggy cotton skin and just one set of clothes

Sittin' on a shelf in a local department store

With no dreams to dream and nothin' to be sorry for



CHORUS

I wish I was a teddy bear

Not livin' or lovin' nor goin' nowhere

I wish I was a teddy bear

And I'm wishin' that I hadn't fallen in love with you



I wish I had a wooden heart and a sawdust mind

Then your mem'ry wouldn't come around hurtin' all the time

I'd have a sewed-on smile and a painted twinkle in my eye

And I never would have ever had to learn how to cry



CHORUS



I wish I had a string you could pull to make me say

"Hi, I'm Teddy-ain't it a lovely day?"

Then I'd know every time I spoke the words were right

And none would know the mess I made of my life



CHORUS



And I'm wishin' that I hadn't fallen in love with you
