Teddy Bear Blues

The lovely and extravagently talented Milla Traylen has written and recorded a song inspired by my Twitter avatar (see right). I’m too overcome to say more, so I’ll let the song speak for itself.

You can follow Milla on Twitter at @millatraylen, and see/hear her play some songs on YouTube.

Teddy Bear Blues

I’m a bear but I’m a lawyer,
And lord knows it’s hard
To hold a pen when you have paws
And you’re smoking a cigar

Well they work me too hard man,
It’s bearsploitation,
Sometimes it’s like I’m alone
In this anti-bear nation

Well I’m a bear but I’m a lawyer
Someone get me out of here
Not even a bearister
But a solicitor

But what can I do though?
It’s hard these days
I want marmalade sandwiches
But on a bear’s wage
I can only afford lettuce

Clients try to cuddle me
Well they think I’m cute
‘Cause I’m a foot tall
And I know contract law to boot

I have a well informed legal opinion
But sometimes I just feel like
The in-house minion
All ’cause I’m a bear

When it rains and I get wet fur
Nobody understands
And I can’t hold an umbrella
Because I don’t have hands
‘Cause I’m a bear

(guitar interlude)

I’m a bear but I’m a lawyer
There’s no one like me
And sometimes students tread on me
In the centre of Leeds

Sometimes I can’t take it
And I get the blues
Well I guess that it’s worse
For lawyers who are kangaroos

    Pretty decent tune mate 😉

    Sure does sound tough being a bear and all.
