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

She told him tales about his soldier dad
But it made her sad, then she'd cry, oh my

Ted used to tell her he'd be twice as good
And he knew 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, your 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, okay

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, your teddy boy's here
Teddy's gonna see you through"

She said, "Teddy don't worry, now mummy is here
Taking good care of you
Teddy don't worry, your mummy is here
Mummy's gonna see you through"

Ooh, ah ooh

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