This is a story of a boy named ted
If his mother said Ted be good, he would
She told him Ted about his soldier dad
Then it made her cry, oh my

Ted used to tell her
He could be twice as good
And he new he could
'Cause in his head he said

Mommy don't worry now Teddy boy's here
Taking good care of you
Mommy don't worry Teddy boy's here
Teddy's gonna see you through

Then came the day she found herself a man
Teddy turned and ran, far away, ok
He couldn't stand to see his mother in love
With another man, he didn't know,oh no
He found a place where he could settle down
And from time to time in his head, he said

Mommy don't worry now Teddy boy's here
Taking good care of you
Mommy don't worry now Teddy boy's here
Teddy's gonna see you through
She said teddy don't worry now mommy is here
Taking good care of you
Teddy don't worry your mummy is here
Mummy's gonna see you through

This is a story of a boy named Ted
If his mother said Ted be good, he would
