  • I wish I had button eyes and a red felt nose
    A shaggy cotton skin and just one set of clothes
    Sittin' on a shelf in a local department store
    With no dreams to dream and nothin' to be sorry for

    [Chorus:]
    I wish I was a teddy bear
    Not livin' or lovin' nor goin' nowhere
    I wish I was a teddy bear
    And I'm wishin' that I hadn't fallen in love with you

    I wish I had a wooden heart and a sawdust mind
    Then your memory wouldn't come around hurtin' all the time
    I'd have a sewed-on smile and a painted twinkle in my eye
    And I never would have ever had to learn how to cry

    [Chorus]

    I wish I had a string you could pull to make me say
    "Hi, I'm Teddy - ain't it a lovely day?"
    Then I'd know every time I spoke the words were right
    And none would know the mess I made of my life

    [Chorus]

    And I'm wishin' that I hadn't fallen in love with you
