Little Nemo and His Bear

Lyrics

A little boy named Nemo
Had a doggie and a bear,
But the bear got his attention
And was taken everywhere.
He bought him lots of nice things
And at night in bed they'd play
While the doggie heavy hearted
Would hear his master say:

Let's play that you're my sweetheart
And let me be your beau.
We'll build a great big castle
And we'll love each other so.
Just you and I'll live in it
And you'll be my lady fair.
In this great big land of make believe
Just Nemo
And his bear.

But Nemo had a bad dream
And he woke up with a start
Dreamed his teddy bear had grown up
And was pulling him apart!
Now doggie gets the nice things
And his bear is laid away.
He's happy with his first love
And never more will say:

Let's play that you're my sweetheart
And let me be your beau.
We'll build a great big castle
And we'll love each other so.
Just you and I'll live in it
And you'll be my lady fair.
In this great big land of make believe
Just Nemo
And his bear.



Tiger Tunes
Little Nemo
and His Bear


From the Musical Extravaganza
The Wizard of Oz
Words by Dave J. Clark
Music by Al Gumble
1907

This rather adorable yet disturbing song was seemingly written to capitalize on Winsor McCay's hugely popular comic strip Little Nemo's Adventures in Slumberland and the Teddy Bear craze. To profit still further, the sheet music states that the song was "Successfully interpolated in The Wizard of Oz".

No contemporary Wizard of Oz program has been found that confirms that this song was ever performed. So it is unknown what character sang it or where it was used in the show--assuming it was in fact an actual interpolation.

In any case it is a very sweet song and sure to enchant Little Nemo fans, Oz fans, and those that love Teddy Bears. So play the MIDI, download the sheet music, and snuggle down in bed with Little Nemo and His Bear!

You can download the sheet music in PDF format which will allow you to save it on disc or print copies for yourself.
