Waylon Jennings – Teddy Bear Song lyrics

(Nick Nixon - Don Earl)

Well, I wish I had button eyes and red fat nose
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
Nor living, nor loving, nor going nowhere
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
And I wish that I never had 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
With a sewed on smile and a painted twinkle in my eye
Then I never would've ever had to learn how to cry.

I wish I was a Teddy Bear
Nor living, nor loving, nor going nowhere
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
And I wish that I never had fallen in love with you.

I wish I had a string you could pull that would make me say
What you wanna hear from me to make you stay
Then I'd know everytime I spoke the words were right
And no one would know what a mess I've made in my life.

I wish I was a Teddy Bear
Nor living, nor loving, nor going nowhere
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
And I wish that I never had fallen in love with you.

I wish I was a Teddy Bear
Nor living, nor loving, nor going nowhere
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
And I wish that I never had fallen in love with you...
