  I WISH I WAS A TEDDY BEAR   Barabra Fairchild

D                                        G
I wish I had button eyes and a red puff nose  
A                      A7                D
Shaggy cotton fur and just one set of clothes
                                            G
Sitting on a shelve in a local department store
A                              A7                 D
 Nothing to be dreamed of or nothing to be sorry for


Chorus:
           D       G                       A7                   D
I wished I was a teddy bear not livin' or lovin' nor goin' no where
                         G            D                      A7  
I wished I was a  teddy bear and I'm wishing that  I hadn't fallen in love 
      D
with you


D                                           G
I  wish I had a wooden heart and a sawdust mind 
A                                      A7             D
Then your memory wouldn't come around hurtin' all the time
                                                  G
With a sewed on smile and a painted twinkle in my eye
A                               A7           D
Then I never would ever had to learn how to cry.

go to Chorus

D                                                G
I wish I had a string you could pull to make me say 
A                             A7     D
"Hi, I'm Teddy.  Ain't it a lovely day."
                                                     G
Then I'd know everytime that I spoke my words would ryhme 
A                                    A7           D
And no one would know the mess I've made of  my mind.

go to chorus
