Patchy Bear


I'm a roly-poly

plump teddy bear

with a lopsided smile

and gold coloured fur


I've lost my growl

and a lot of hair

I'm old and I'm bald

and my fur has gone bare


but I love to be cuddled

and snuggle in bed

I need someone to say

You're my very best Ted


I like listening to stories

to dance and to play

I can keep secrets

and I'll do what you say


I need someone special

a friend just like you

so take care of me

and I'll take care of you.
