Teddy Boy

Paul McCartney

This is the story of a boy named Ted,
If his mother said, Ted be good, he would,

Taking good care of you
Momma don't worry your Teddy Boy's here,
Teddy's gonna see you through.

Then came the day she found herself a man,

And from time to time, in his head, he said…

Momma don't worry…
…and she said,

Teddy don't worry, now mummy is here,
taking good care of you…
Teddy don't worry your mummy is here,

mother said, Ted be good, he would…
