The Song of the Depressive Bear (Who Hates Picnics)

WakehurstBear

If you go down to the woods today
You’re sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today
You’ll find one bear in disguise.

The rudest bear that ever there was,
shuns good company, because
Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

CHORUS:

Fasting time for Teddy Bear,
The mouldy old recluse is having a grouchy time today.
Watch him, catch him unaware,
And see him starving on his own today.
See him glumly stick about.
He hates to play and shout,
but be weighed down by his cares.
At six o’clock his grandchildren come
To take him home to bed,
because he’s a sad old teddy bear.

If you go down to the woods today,
You’d better not go alone.
There’s one cross bear in the woods today,
So safer to stay at home.

The rudest bear that ever there was,
shuns good company, because
Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

REPEAT CHORUS:

This old bear that’s hidden out,
Is sure of hunger today.
There’s only bark and beetles to eat,
and miserable thoughts to play.

Inside a tree where nobody sees,
He hides his bulk without any please,
‘Cause that’s the way to avoid a teddy bear picnic.

REPEAT CHORUS:

  1. Oh my!!!
    An evil teddy bear!!
    Reminds me of that episode of supernatural where the little girl wished for a live teddy – and got one depressed ball of fluff 😉

    • I never watched supernatural, as the first series clashed with something else I was watching, and I have old telly equipment that doesn’t allow me to record on one channel while watching another. Wish I had been able to watch it, though. Telly equipment is on the long list of things that would be good to have after all the repairs are done and the bills paid, and, and, and …I’m sure you know the story…
