Teddy Bear Song recorded by Barbara Fairchild written by Nick Nixon and Don Earl
F I wish I had button eyes and a red felt nose
C A shaggy cotton skin and just one set of clothes
F Sitting on a shelf in a local department store
C With no dreams to dream and nothing to be sorry for chorus F I wish I w-as a teddy bear
C Not living or loving nor going nowhere C7 F I wish I w-as a teddy bear
C And I'm wishing that I hadn't fallen in love with you
F I wish I had a wooden heart and a sawdust mind
C Then your memory wouldn't come around hurting all the time
F I'd have a sewed on smile and a painted twinkle in my eye
C And I never would have ever had to learn how to cry repeat chorus
F I wish I had a string you could pull to make me say G7
C Hi I'm Teddy ain't it a lovely day
F Then I'd know every time I spoke the words were right
C And no one would know the mess I've made of my life repeat chorus
