Teddy Bear's Picnic

When I was a kid, my mom used to sing Henry Hall's song 
The Teddy Bears' Picnic:

If you go down in the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise
If you go down in the woods today, you'd better go in disguise.
For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain
Because today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.
(lyrics by

And today our foster pekingese Teddy Bear Blue
will be going to the Potomac Valley Pekingese Club's 
Annual Pekingese Picnic.
He's wearing his kerchief with the fire hydrants on it 
because he tilts at fire hydrants and cable peds
as if he were Don Quixote himself.
(Teddy is available for adoption from Potomac Valley Pekingese Club, )

And Teddy Bear will go along with his four brothers and sisters:
Wylie, Lily, Missy, and Cosi,
each in a gingham picnic kerchief.
Because when the pekingese picnic rolls around,
all the little teddy bear pekes gather for a day of fun.

Every Teddy Bear who's good is sure of a treat today
There's lots of marvelous things to eat
and wonderful games to play.

Sometimes it's good to get away from the seriousness of life
and just take your pekingese to a picnic.
