Thread Name: please leave me my little teddy bear
Subject: RE: please leave me my little teddy bear
That came from this site and a thread asking what songs Mums sing to their children these days.
The use of the term teddy bear dates the song to be after 1902 but the reference to soldiers and sailor boys possibly makes it post World War 1
song. I think the maestro searcher will probably come up with more soon.
