Teddy Bears Picnic

Teddy Bears Picnic
(John W. Bratton and James B. Kennedy)

If you go out in the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go out in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

     Picnic time for teddy bears,
     The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today.
     Watch them, catch them unawares,
     And see them picnic on their holiday.
     See them gaily gather 'bout.
     They love to play and shout.
     They never have any cares.
     At six o'clock their mommies and daddies
     Will take them home to bed
     Because they're tired little teddy bears.

If you go out in the woods today,
You'd better not go alone.
It's lovely out in the woods today,
But safer to stay at home.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

     CHORUS

Every teddy bear, that's been good
Is sure of a treat today
There's lots of wonderful things to eat
And wonderful games to play

Beneath the trees, where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

     CHORUS
