Picnic time for teddy bears,
the little teddy bears are having a lovley time today,
see them on there holidays they like to picnic on there jolly days,
see them gaylie gad about they like to sing and shout they never have any cares,
at 6 o'clock their mummys and daddies will take them home to bed because they're tired little teddy bears.
