If You Go Into The Woods Today…

RDP Tuesday: pomp

It’s a grand song, a bouncy joyful song about  our beloved toys coming to life and sneaking off for a picnic.

You’re free to join in the fun, if you wear a disguise, keep your head down and I’m guessing it’s probably not a good idea to get caught

because

toys that come to life and sneak off to the woods to have a party is a situation that will probably not end well – if you pay attention to these little rhymes and slightly dark little songs, it never does, does it?

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

If you go down in the woods today
You’re sure of a big surprise
If you go down in the woods today
You’d better go in disguise!

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain
Because today’s the day the
Teddy Bears have their picnic

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 Mommies and Daddies
Will take them home to bed
Because they’re tired little Teddy Bears

Every Teddy Bear who’s been good
Is sure of a treat today
There’s lots of marvelous things to eat
And wonderful games to play

Beneath the trees where nobody sees
They’ll hide and seek as long as they please
‘Cause that’s the way the
Teddy Bears have their picnic

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 Mommies and Daddies
Will take them home to bed
Because they’re tired little Teddy Bears
Because they’re tired little Teddy Bears

In a Word

“If you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”. – (Act III, scene I).”
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

If you don’t do it on Facebook or Instagram …sorry Mr Shakespeare- in a word the answer is NO.

 

Roomies!

Dickens’ wrote in a Christmas Carol that we should keep Christmas in our hearts year round.

Can do will do Mr Dickens!

But it will have to share room in there with Halloween.
