Thursday Theme Song: (Let me be your) Teddy Bear

Once again it is TTS and we thank Hootin' Anni for sponsoring this fun meme ...  we are addicted.
Today's song is by the KING ELVIS PRESLEY...yep the mom is a big fan of EP. She and Dad saw him perform in Greensboro, NC about two years before his untimely death.  The lyrics are short and sweet but the video at the end is ROCKIN'.
Baby let me be
your lovin teddy bear
Put a ribbon chain around my neck,
Oh let me be your teddy bear

I don't wanna be your tiger
'Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be your lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough
Just wanna be, your Teddy Bear
Put a ribbon chain around my neck
and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be your
All of the teddy bears in today's pictures
reside in my house.  They are way older than me. They were all treasured friends of my human sissy when she was just a wee
lass.  Mom told me they all have names...but she can only remember two names Brownie the big brown bear, and Biggy, the Panda, who is the oldest, ~ 35 years old, and most cherished if mom throws him out she could lose her Mother status.  MOL
Now get ready to rock and roll as you listen to EP singing
Let me be your Teddy Bear

I remember when Elvis first sang this song. He had a rough life and an even rougher death, but I still love him. Thanks for posting an Elvis song!

Jazzi said...

Great song and looks like you have been bombarded with Bears Madi!! :-)


SquirrelQueen said...

Hi Madi, it looks like you are trying to decide which one of those little fellows is going to be your Teddy Bear. I'm sure a lot of your bloggie boy friends would volunteer for the position.

We love EP and remember that song well. Biggy the Panda looks just like a bear I remember one of my younger sisters having.

Teddy Bear hugs & Purrs,
J and Cindi Lou
and the little ones

Great choice and video Madi. You should have heard mum singing along. On second thoughts it's probably best you couldn't hear her.

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Excellent song! Mom would love to hold YOU like a teddy bear!

Kathy said...

Curious as a...
I like the way you gently check out the furry fellows on YOUR rug!
Do you ever snuggle up against them, when you think nobody's looking?!
I'm afraid I don't remember that song, but it's a great thing to have seen the King in concert!
Yes, he passed away too young!

Gloria said...

Awe.....I love it, EP, and Teddy Bears, and you!

The Japanese Redneck said...

Those are precious Teddy Bears. Madi you can be my Teddy Bear too!

Carletta said...

I think this was a perfect song choice for all those Teddy's you're keeping company with.
I'm probably going to have this song in my head all day! :)

I love these old teddy bears... and how wonderful to hold on to them for so long. And of course everyone loves Elvis. Well, most everyone.

ABBY said...

Oh goodness what a golden oldie.
Madi your Mom sure is picking some great music.
But we said we'd rather cuddle you than a bear!


The Island Cats said...

Will you be our teddy bear, Madi??

mayziegal said...

Okay, my mom just went SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! really loud in my ear cuz she had a panda bear JUST LIKE THAT ONE (that was me imitating her screeching) when she was a little girl. She said she had it for the longest time but doesn't know where it went and sure wishes she still had it cuz she luved it.

I think they all look like they'd be oodles of fun to destuff!

Wiggles & Wags,

Lorenza said...

Happy Thursday, Madi!
My grandma loves that song!
There are lots of pawesome teddy bears in your home!
Kisses and hugs

Ann said...

That Panda, my daughter had one exactly like that,

Neither do I want a tiger or a tiger mama. You hear about the Chinese woman's book as a tiger mama.
