Information About Fuzzy Wuzzy

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he? This is a poem of historic value. It is a poem that was created back in the nineteenth century during the historic battles between the British and the Sudanese Mahdi.

It was a derogatory term used for a black person, especially used towards one with fuzzy hair. It was also used towards indigenous dark coloured skinned and curly haired population that the military and settlers did not understand and just met. It was used in a derogatory way, even when the settlers and military did not see it at the time because the settlers and military were white.

The poem was unsophisticated and there for was voiced by an unsophisticated British soldier. Though these days, it is not expressed that way, and is now a nursery rhyme. Battles between the British and the Sudanese Mahdi are historic and have been recorded. In the end the Fuzzy was a Hadendoa soldier for the Sudanese people. A warrior in their tribe that gave the British soldiers a very hard time in the wars they shared between the different cultures. The Sudan warriors, and people, were the non-fuzzy bears mentioned in the poem.

This version is a little bit longer

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy was he?
They say that all the seals in Hudson Bay envied Fuzzy's fuzz
But when they cut his fuzz away, he wasn't what he use to was!
Oh!
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy was he?

This one has other animals in it.

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy
No, by gosh, he wasn’t, was he?

Silly Willy was a worm
Silly Willy wouldn’t squirm
Silly Willy wasn’t silly
No, by gosh, he wasn’t really

Iddy Biddy was a mouse
Iddy Biddy had no spouse
Iddy Biddy wasn’t pretty
Oh, by gosh, it was a pity

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy
No, by gosh, he wasn’t, was he?

Silly Willy was a worm
Silly Willy wouldn’t squirm
Silly Willy wasn’t silly
No, by gosh, he wasn’t really

Iddy Biddy was a mouse
Iddy Biddy had no spouse
Iddy Biddy wasn’t pretty
Oh, by gosh, it was a pit
