As these words have been requested in another thread, and don't seem to be in the DT:

Teddy Bears Rave Up

If you go down in the woods today you better go in disguise.
If you go down in the woods today you're sure of a big surprise.
'Cos every bear that ever there was is gathered there for certain because
today's the day the Teddy Bears have their Rave Up.

There's Angel Bears who've come on their bike dressed in their leather gear.
There's gallons of Scrump all green with limps and 'orrible Watney's beer.
Yogi downed a pint of it quick, was very promptly 'orribly sick
and filled up both of Paddington's new wellies

Rave Up time for Teddy Bears.
The little Teddy Bears are having a lovely time today.
Grooving to those heavy sounds
that only Status Quo know how to play.
Cresta Bear is freaking out.
He's frothing Man, he's blown his little brain.
Rupert's spaced, he's on a trip. Winnie the Pooh is doing the strip.
They reckon he's on The Game.

Now every bear that's ever been good is sure of a treat today,
for Mummy and Daddy and Baby bear have found a new game to play.
Beneath the leaves where nobody sees there's Goldilocks tied up to a tree.
You bet your life she's getting more than porridge.

So 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.
'Cos it's a really kinky scene, a big butch bear is playing the Queen
and they don't call him Sugar Puffs for nothing.

Rave Up time for Teddy Bears.
The little Teddy Bears are having a lovely time today.
Groping in the undergrowth,
Oh what would Enid Blyton have to say?
See them gaily stagger round, collapsing on the ground,
they haven't got any cares.
At 12 o'clock the coppers are coming to take them all away,
'cos they've been naughty little Teady Bears



Note: This was recorded by Fred Wedlock on his album Oldest Swinger in Town, with Chris Newman. I'm not sure whether he wrote it or if it's attributable to someone else.

I see from the thread on "The Teddy Boys' Rave-up" that Leadfingers also reckons that the Teddy Bear parody was down to Pee Wee Hunt.

PS Tune is, of course, the Teddy Bears' Picnic...

It was posted in 99 in teddy bears picnic, though not easy to spot at the end of the thread.

I used to have this album about 20 odd years ago, and from time to time used to sing it (depending on the audience....).
I don't have the benefit of that album now, but I thought that the second verse started with "Hell's Angel bears have come on their bikes...", and in the first refrain "... Rupert, spaced, is high on a trip...".

it's a great song - one of my friends sings it. Other friends were worried I might not like it as I collect & make bears but I loved it the first time I heard it. Thanks for the words.

Mechanical Horsetrough was the group Pee Wee Hunt was in when this was recorded.I knew him when he was still in the Andrew (Royal Navy )in Singapore in 1970 as I recall.

The lyrics to The Teddy Bears' Rave-up were written by myelf during the early seventies when Alan Briars and myself were the comedy
duo Mechanical Horsetrough. After the success of our great mate Fred Wedlock with his hit The Oldest Swinger in Town, Fred wanted to follow it up with Teddy Bears' Rave-up but EMI who own the copyright to TB Picnic prevented it. Sadly, Fred is now in the great folk club in the sky and is sorely missed. Peewee Hunt 21/6/2011
