If you go down to the woods today

This is the song, as has been sung for many, many years.

If you go down to the woods today,
You’re sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today,
You’d better go in disguise.
For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain because
Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Picnic time for teddy bears;
The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today.
Watch us catch them unawares,
And see them picnic on their holiday.
See them gaily gad about.
They love to play and shout,
They never have any cares.
At six o’clock their mummies and daddies
Will take them home to bed
Because they’re tired little teddy bears.

But with the horrendous news that this government, which announced itself as going to be the greenest government ever, is going to sell off all our forests, even the ancient ones, the words will change!

Have a look at this map to see the full horror and scale of where the sales of forests will be.  http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/msie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=108710524048595933746.0004966ac0873c8a36ed6&ll=52.873434,-1.608467&spn=4.787501,6.102218&source=embed

Yes, it is a huge link but then so is the sell off !

Oh, by the way, have put some new words to the song!

If you go down to the woods today,
You’re sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to the woods today,
You’d better go in disguise.
For every bear that ever there was
Won’t gather there for certain because
There’s nowhere for teddy bears to have their picnic.

Picnic time for teddy bears;
Can’t happen anymore, there’s no wood today.
Watch our woods just disappear,
Sold off  for cash to the highest bidder.
There will be nowhere to go,
Nowhere to play and shout,
Nowhere to lose their cares.
So straight away their mummies and daddies,
Will take them home crying,
Because they’re sad little teddy bears.

    1. THanks for the comment Ingrid. I know, it really does beggar belief! And from the government that has a tree as a logo and said it would be the greenest government ever – ha!
