Charted: 3 1
  • Oh baby let me be, your lovin' teddy bear
    Put a chain around my neck, and lead me anywhere
    Oh let me be (oh let him be)
    Your teddy bear

    I don't want to be your tiger
    'Cause tigers play too rough
    I don't want to be your lion
    'Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough

    I just want to be, your teddy bear
    Put a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere
    Oh let me be (oh let him be)
    Your teddy bear

    Baby let me be, around you every night
    Run your fingers through my hair
    And cuddle me real tight
    Oh let me be (oh let him be)
    Your teddy bear

    I don't want to be your tiger
    'Cause tigers play too rough
    I don't want to be your lion
    'Cause lions ain't the kind you love enou-ou-ou-ough

    Just want to be, your teddy bear
    Put a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere
    Oh let me be (oh let him be) your teddy bear
    Oh let me be (oh let him be) your teddy bear
    I just want to be your teddy bear (ooh) Writer/s: BERNIE LOWE, KAL MANN
