FACT: Did you know that “Teddy Bears’ Picnic” is a song consisting of a melody by U.S. American composer John Walter Bratton, written in 1907, and lyrics added by Irish songwriter Jimmy Kennedy in 1932. To this day, it remains a popular children’s song, having been recorded by numerous artists over the decades.
