Thread Name: please leave me my little teddy bear
Subject: please leave me my little teddy bear
My mother sang a song to me when I was an infant, and in later years when she got nostalgic. In fact she sang it to me about a week before she died. I now have great-grandchildren and would love to sing it to them. It concerns a child who being told of 'poor little girls and boys' tells Mum to give his/her things away to the poor children, but ends each verse(or chorus, Im not sure which) with the plea 'But please leave me my little Teddy Bear'. Can anybody help please?
