In the corner of the living room
sits Tatty Ted the bear
His mohairs worn
one eye has gone
he hasnt got a care

When he was made in 1912
his fur was bought to life
A centre- seam with Growler in
and made in germany by Steiff

Sophie his new owner was the daughter of a lord
and she took him home from Hamleys so patently adored
Played with him for just 5 years till she was nearly eight
Then she lost interest and left him by a grate

Rescued by a nanny and into a toy chest placed
Then off to Christies one day a white van raced
Sold one rainy afternoon as lot One o four
Despite phone bids went , to best bid from the floor

A new home now at nearly fourty
Sarah Jane was oh so proud;
But wasnt Teddy really dirty
Sarah told her dad so loud:

Every father has a daughter
Who`s in every way adored;
and her wish however hazy
just can never be ignored:

Dad took teddy, as he oughter
to an ancient bear restorer;
where our ted was washed and dried
cleaned and tidied then Re-eyed:

Restored to best of bears once more
New coat,new growler and new straw;
the perfect bear for those who hear
the patter of the auctioneer:

Lets hear your bids and see them clear
opportunity once in 40 years;
One centre seam,restored and clean
antique teddy bear sold as seen:

No longer known as tatty Fred
This lord of all that he surveys;
Displayed now in collectors case
but care is written all over his face:

He longs for the days in the old living room
when he a humble tatty bear
with mo-hair worn and one eye gone
just hadnt got a care.

No matter where your life may lead
humble home or loft above;
the one thing any bear will need
is simply childrens love:
