“The Teddy Bear’s Picnic” – Music by John W. Bratton and Lyrics by Jimmy 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 dance about.

They love to play and shout.

And 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
