Beatles – Teddy Boy lyrics

This is the story
About a boy named Ted
If his mother said (Said)
"Ted, be good (Be good, Ted)" he would (Alright)

She told him tales
About a soldier dad
But it made her sad
Then she cried, oh my

Ted used to tell her
He'd be twice as good
And he knew he could
Cos in his head he said
"Mummy don't worry
Your mblmblmbl's here
Taking good care of you
Mama don't worry
Your Teddy boy's here
Teddy's gonna see you through"

And she said
"Teddy don't worry
Your mummy's here
Taking good care of you"
She said, "Teddy don't worry
Your mummy's here
Teddy's gonna see you through"

He said, "Ta da da..."

Then came the day
She found herself a man
Teddy turned and ran
Oh far away, oh yeah

He couldn't stand
Just to be around
So he left the town far away, yeah yeah

Ted used to tell her
He'd be twice as good
And he know he could
Cos in his head he said
"Mummy don't worry
Now Teddy boy's here
Taking good care of you
Mummy don't worry
Your Teddy boy's here
Teddy's gonna see you through"

And she said
"Teddy don't worry
Now mummy's here
Taking good care of you
Teddy don't worry
Your mummy's here
Mummy's gonna see you through"

And he said
"Mummy mummy don't worry
Your Teddy boy's here
Taking good care of you
Mummy don't worry
Now Teddy boy's here
Teddy's gonna see you through"

Take your partners
And dosi-do
Hold them tight
And don't let go
When got it. Jump up

Take your partners
And dosi-do
When you got it
Then let it go
Hold them tight then

Now Ted used to tell her
He'd be twice as good
And he knew he could
Cos in his head, he said (fade out)
