If you were to come and visit me,
There is something it would not take long to
If you look around you would see a teddy bear,
Not in just one room they are everywhere.
There came a time not too long ago,
And I knew I must not let my feelings show.
I gathered all of my teddy’s and put them on the
“There is a job you need to do and you know the
“I have heard there are small children the
police go to see,
Where there is fighting or strife in their
“I need volunteers but you will all need to be
This is a special job and nothing must go
“I love you all, this I am sure you already
But you must join the Teddy Bear Police Force so

We can be there for these little ones,
Whose hearts are filled with sorrow and are
having no fun.”
“They don’t understand what all the shouting is

Then through the door walked a policeman, so big
I shared with him my plight,
To get my gift to the small children who were
out of sight.
The little ones who needed them so,
He said, “Come with me, I’ll show you where they
Now my teddy bear story comes to an end,
But if you’re ever lonely or in need of a
Get your self a teddy bear they will always be
With you or someone their special gift to share.
