If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise;
If you go down to the woods today, you'd better go in disguise,
For ev'ry bear that ever there was 
Will gather there for certain because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

(Refrain:)
Picnic time for teddy bears?
The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today.
Watch them, catch them unawares,
And see them picnic on their holiday.
See them gaily gad about,
They love to play and shout, they never have any cares.
At six o'clock their moms and dads will take them home to bed
Because they're tired little teddy bears.

If you go down in the woods today, you better not go alone;
It's lovely down in the woods today, but safer to stay at home,
For ev'ry bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

(Repeat Refrain)

Every teddy bear, that's been good, is sure of a treat today.
There's lots of wonderful things to eat, and wonderful games to play.
Beneath the trees, where nobody sees,
They'll hide and seek as long as they please.
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

(Coda:)
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.
