a big brown furry-down up to my head
if i were a bear,
and a big bear too,
i shouldn't much care
if it froze or snew;
i shouldn't much mind
if it snowed or friz—
i'd be all fur-lined
with a coat like his!
for i'd have fur boots and a brown fur wrap,
and brown fur knickers and a big fur cap.
i'd have a fur muffle-ruff to cover my jaws,
and brown fur mittens on my big brown paws.
with a big brown furry-down up to my head,
i'd sleep all the winter in a big fur bed.
