The Teddy Bear's Picnic


The meadow's green, the flowers sweet,

and we have many good things to eat.

Ah, what a day! What lovely air!

How nice to be a Teddy Bear!


Pass the bread and pass the cheese.

Be sure to taste the chicken please.

Have an apple, plum or pear!

Such fun to be a Teddy Bear!


Bert's got his sailor shirt,

and Mae and Sue look awfully pert

in matching hats! I say! Such flair!

How fine to be a Teddy Bear!


"This afternoon I shall recall

for all my life," says Tiz to Paul.

"A perfect time without a care!"

How grand to be a Teddy Bear!
