I Wish I Was A Teddy Bear Lyrics

I wish I had button eyes and a red felt nose
Shaggy cotton skin and just one set of clothes
Sittin' on a shelf in a local department store
With no dreams to dream and nothin' to be sorry for

(Chorus)
I wish I was a teddy bear
Not livin' or lovin'
Nor goin' nowhere
I wish I was a teddy bear
And I'm wishin' that I hadn't fallen in love with you

I wish I had a wooden heart and a sawdust mind
Then your mem'ry wouldn't come around hurtin' all the time
I'd have a sewed-on smile and a pretty twinkle in my eye
And I never would have ever had to learn how to cry

(Repeat Chorus)

I wish I had a string to pull to make me say
"Hi! I'm Teddy!
Ain't it a lovely day"
Then I'd know every time I spoke the words were right
And no one would know the mess I've made of my life

(Repeat Chorus)

And I'm wishin' that I hadn't fallen in love with you

I wish I had button eyes and a red felt nose
Shaggy cotton skin and just one set of clothes
Sittin' on a shelf in a local department store
