THE COMING OF TEDDY BEAR’S

Home > Composers > Sid Robinovitch > THE COMING OF TEDDY BEARS

Dennis Lee’s bedtime poem is given a scrumptious setting with long lines, intuitive voice leading, sweet-spot vocal registers and sensual harmonies. Approachable for most SATB choirs, this piece would make a touching conclusion to any program.

The air is quiet
Round my bed.
The dark is drowsy
In my head.
The sky’s forgetting
To be red,
And soon I’ll be asleep.
A half a million
Miles away
The silver stars
Come out to play,
And comb their hair
And that’s OK
And soon I’ll be asleep.
And teams of fuzzy
Teddy bears
Are stumping slowly
Up the stairs
To rock me in
Their rocking chairs
And soon I’ll be asleep.
The night is shining
Round my head.
The room is snuggled
In my bed.
Tomorrow I’ll be
Big they said
And soon I’ll be asleep.
