Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies chain across the ring
Turn and chain your lady right on home
Join hands, circle left around you go
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring
I wish I was a teddy bear
Do a dosado and promenade her
I wish I was a teddy bear
Not living or loving or going anywhere


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Down the middle, right and left thru I say
Square thru four hands around you know
Dosado your corner once you go
Slide thru, square thru 3/4 round
Swing the corner promenade her
I wish I was a teddy bear
Not living or loving or going anywhere

And I wished that 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.
