Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All 4 ladies chain, across that ring
Turn and chain your lady right on home
Join hands circle left, go walking around you know
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
You swing, promenade the square
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
Not living or loving or going anywhere


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade go halfway
Down the middle with at right and left thru you know
Square thru 4 hands around and go
Do a dosado with the corner once you go
Slide thru, square thru 3 hands
Swing the corner, promenade the square
I wish I was a Teddy Bear
Not living or loving or going anywhere


TAG

Swing her too
And I wish I hadn't fallen in love with you

I Wish I Was A Teddy Bear
 
 

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

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 mem'ry 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

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 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 no one would know the mess I made of my life

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

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

Lyrics by Don Earl and Nick Nixon.
Recorded by Barbara Fairchild.
