When you go down to the woods today
You’re in for a big surprise
Because they sold off most of the woods last week
And they put in a high rise
The flooring guys came down Tuesday morn
And yesterday they hung all the doors
Today’s the day they come in and do all the painting
The teddy bears had been there for years
But they didn’t have a deed
The little old lady who once owned the woods
Her son sold them out of greed
And now he lives in Chesapeake Bay
And all the bears have no where to play
Today’s the day the condos are going to be painted

Moving day for teddy bears
Only their anguished stares
Won’t help them get back their holiday
Good times at the picnic land
Never come back again
A court order just came down today
There might be a stadium
For that team which never wins
But threatened to move away
And at six o’clock the security people
Will march them all away
Because there’s no place here for teddy bears.

The rooms are nice and quite reasonable
As long as you’re middle class
But bears are quite unemployable
With no thumbs you can’t handle tasks
They’re sad and bored and just sit all day
Gosh, this could never raise the crime rate
But hey, who cares, that high rise is now being painted

Wear this shirt: to remind yourself that when you paint, you have to start at the middle of the shirt and work out. If you don’t, you’ll be trapped.

Don’t wear this shirt: if you feel ashamed when people stare at your can.

This shirt tells the world: “This is how I roll.”

We call this color: Nobody Puts Baby Blue In A Corner

Top Comments are discussion forum posts we have deemed worthy of your time. Listen, we get a lot of comments, and most of the time, it's pretty forgettable stuff; but sometimes you rise to the top like butterfat in milk. We don't recommend you base your self-worth on how often we feature your comments, but we don't expressly forbid it either.
