59 – Elvis Presley – (Let me be your) Teddy Bear (1957)

Teddy Bear foi escrita pela dupla Kal Mann e Bernie Lowe. A versão de Elvis Presley foi gravada em 24 de Janeiro de 1957 e lançada em 11 de Junho do mesmo ano, pela RCA Records.

A canção alcançou o número 1 dos hits americanos durante o verão de 1957. O titulo completo da canção vem com um “Let me be your” antes do nome que ela ficou conhecida, “Teddy Bear”.

A letra:

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 Bear

I 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
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

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 ain't the kind you love enough
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
