Jonathan Coulton - My Beige Bear Lyrics

Taupe mouse, top hat on his head
Thinks he looks so good
Puce cat wonÂ’t get off the bed
Even though she should
Indigo monkeyÂ’s hiding underneath some other monkeys
Nobody even knows sheÂ’s there

My beige bear doesnÂ’t care that heÂ’s old
My beige bear still has four paws to hold
When itÂ’s dark and itÂ’s cold
I reach out for my beige bear

Tan horse, dusty on the shelf
Too breakable to touch
Jade snake, happy by herself
WonÂ’t cuddle very much
Indigo monkeyÂ’s making trouble when she should be sleeping
Everyone wants to go to bed

My beige bear doesnÂ’t care that heÂ’s old
My beige bear still has four paws to hold
When itÂ’s dark and itÂ’s cold
I reach out for my beige bear

Beige bear says that some monkeys might just be lonely
Beige bear says that no monkeys WANT to be bad
Beige bear says that some monkeys misbehave only
Because theyÂ’re sad...

Mauve dog gets the bed just right
The pillow sinks down deep
Cream cow moos a soft goodnight
Now everyoneÂ’s asleep
Indigo monkeyÂ’s lying peacefully with arms around her
Next to a wise and kindly bear

My beige bear doesnÂ’t care that heÂ’s old
My beige bear still has four paws to hold
When itÂ’s dark and itÂ’s cold
I reach out for my beige bear
