Kitty Wells — Teddy Bear Song lyrics

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

I wish I was a Teddy Bear
Not living, nor loving, nor going nowhere
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
And I'm wishin' 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 to hurt all the time
I'd have a sewed on smile and a painted twinkle in my eye
And I never would've ever had to learn how to cry.

I wish I was a Teddy Bear
Not living, nor loving, nor going nowhere
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
And I'm wishin' I hadn't fallen in love with you.

--- Instrumental ---

I wish I had a string you'd pull to make me say
Hi, I'm Teddy ain't that a lovely day
Then I'd know everytime I've spoke the words were right
And no one would know the mess I made in my life.

I wish I was a Teddy Bear
Not living, nor loving, nor going nowhere
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
And I'm wishin' I hadn't fallen in love with you.

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