Teddy Bear Song
recorded by Barbara Fairchild
written by Nick Nixon and Don Earl

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