About The Song

– This was written by Kal Mann and Bernie Lowe for Elvis Presley’s second feature film, Loving You. The song, backed with the film’s title track, topped the pop charts on July 8, 1957, the day before the movie’s release, where it stayed for seven weeks. The songwriters took advantage of Elvis’s accidental reputation as a teddy-bear lover after a false rumor of his penchant for the stuffed animals spread to his fans, who promptly flooded him with hordes of cuddly pals. The day after Christmas, he donated the collection of thousands to the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis.
– This song showed a side of The King that was more sweet than sexy, perhaps a bid to tone down his swivel-hipped invitation to sin that scandalized the censors of the time.
– The song was a U.S. No. 1 hit during the summer of 1957, staying at No. 1 for seven weeks, the third of the four Presley had that year.
– Aside from dominating the pop charts, this also topped the R&B Best Sellers List and the country charts.

Lyric

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
Baby let me be
Your lovin’ Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your teddy bearI don’t wanna be a tiger
Cause tigers play too rough
I don’t wanna be a lion
‘Cause lions ain’t the kind
You love enough 

I just wanna be
Your Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your Teddy Bear

Oh baby let me be
Around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair
And cuddle me real tight
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your Teddy Bear

I don’t wanna be a tiger
Cause tigers play too rough
I don’t wanna be a lion
Cause lions aren’t the kind
You love enou-ou-ou-ough

Just wanna be your Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your teddy bear
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
(Your teddy bear)
I just wanna
Be your Teddy Bear (ooh)
