Teddybears picnic

""The Teddy Bears' Picnic" is a song written by John Walter Bratton in 1907, with lyrics added in 1932 by prolific songwriter Jimmy Kennedy, and is still a popular tune recorded by several artists and appearing in many children's recordings. One of the main themes is strongly reminiscent of the celebrated Robert Browne Hall March "Death or Glory" composed 12 years earlier"

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.

Picnic time for teddy bears?

The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today. 

 

G                     Gdim          G7                                    G        Fdim    

Watch them, catch them unawares, And see them picnic on their holiday. 

 

C               Fm7   C                                     Fdim                         C                        

See them gaily     gad about, They love to play and shout, they never have any cares. 

 

   Fm                     Fdim                                     C             Am7 

At six o'clock their mummys and daddys will take them home to bed 

 

 Am7                  Dm7         G7     

Because they're tired little teddy bears. 

 

 

 

    Am       E7              Am      E7            Am            E7   Am 

If you go down in the woods today, you 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.

Every teddy bear, who's been good, is sure of a treat    today. 

 

              C        G                C           G           C              G7            

There's lots of marvellous things to eat, and wonderful games to play. 

 

   Dm7                   G7                                          Cmaj7                  Am 

Beneath the trees, where nobody sees, They'll hide and seek as long as they please. 

 

   F                C         F                 C              G 

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

 

Coda:

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