Jerry Garcia – Teddy Bears Picnic lyrics

If you go down to the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise
If you go down to the woods today
You better go in disguise

For every 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
There's lots of marvelous things to eat
And wonderful games to play

Beneath the trees, where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
'Cause that's the way the teddy bears have their picnic

Picnic time for teddy bears
The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today
Watch them, catch them unawares
And see them picnic on their holiday
See them gaily gad about

They love, to play and shout, they never have any cares
At six o'clock their mommies and daddies
Will take them home to bed
Because they're tired little teddy bears

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 every bear that ever there was
Will gather there together because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

    This song lyrics were written in the early 30's. To me I picture the police running around the woods looking for moonshiners during prohibition. As long as I can remember police were known as bears so if you take that context it could mean the feds looking for liquor. Hiding in the woods. Hide and seek. Safe to stay here at home. Wear a disguise. They could all have a law enforcement meaning. Teddy bear picnic is just the meaning of what the police do getting all together for a search.
