Teddy Bear Picnic song

Teddy Bear Picnic Song

Lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy (1932), Music by J.K. Bratton

If you go down to the woods today

You're sure of a big surprise.

If you go down to the woods today

You'd better go in disguise.


For ev'ry bear that ever there was

Will gather there for certain, because

Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.


Ev'ry teddy bear who's been good

Is sure of a treat today.

There's lots of marvelous things to eat

And wonderful games to play.


Beneath the trees where nobody sees

They'll hide and seek as long as they please

Cause that's the way the teddy bears have their picnic.


If you go down to the woods today

You'd better not go alone.

It's lovely down in the woods today

But safer to stay at home.


For ev'ry 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 gad about

They love to play and shout;

They never have any care;


At six o'clock their mummies and daddies,

Will take them home to bed,

Because they're tired little teddy bears.
