Teddy is a bear, you know.
A monster that could tear you so.
He’ll rip through tents with fearsome paws,
(Please never mind they have no claws).
You’ll run and scream from one so tough,
(Clothed seam to seam in a coat of fluff).
His fierce attacks! (are soft to touch).
The great beast roars! “I love you bear-y much.”

See the bear,
Be the bear,
And flee the bear too.

When danger burns
And anger turns
And licks its chops at you…

Burn it right back
Turn and attack
And end it ‘fore it’s coup.

But hold your claws
And think, on pause,
And turn and walk, when due.
