Don't Listen to Sartre, Trust Your Teddy!


The answer to my existential despair
Lies in my bright red teddy-bear,
Who loves me without reservation
Whatever the degree of my alination!

I like to cherish him and cuddle,
It sorts out my philosophical muddle,
My Angst is cured, my Nausea too,
It's amazing what a bear can do!

Don't get your knickers in a twist
By being an existentialist,
Just hug your bright red teddy-bear,
He'll save you by his Being-There.

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
