My Teddy Bear


A teddy bear is nice to hold.

The one I have is getting old.

his paws are almost wearing out

And so's his funny furry snout

From rubbing on my nose of skin,

And all his fur is pretty thin.

A ribbon and piece of string

Make a sort of necktie thing.

His eyes came out and now instead

He has some new ones made of thread.

I take him everywhere I go

And tell him all the things I know.

I like the way he feels at night,

All snuggled up against me tight.
