Teddy Bears

The Teddy Bears were an American pop music group. They were record producer Phil Spector’s first vocal group.   Following graduation from Fairfax high school in Los Angeles, California, Phil Spector became obsessed with “To Know Him Is to Love Him”, a song he had written for his group, the Teddy Bears. After a hasty audition at ERA Records who offered to finance a studio session, the Teddy Bears – Phil Spector, Marshall Leib, Harvey Goldstein , lead singer Annette Kleinbard, and drummer Sandy Nelson – recorded the song at Gold Star Studios at a cost of $75.   It went on to become a global hit.  Although subsequent releases by the Teddy Bears on the Imperial label were well-recorded soft pop, they did not sell, and within a year of the debut, Spector disbanded the group.

Lyrics
To know know know him
Is to love love love him
Just to see that smile
Makes my life worthwhile
To know know know him
Is to love love love him
And I do
And I do
And I do
Oh I’ll be good to him
I’ll bring joy to him oh oh
Everyone says there’ll come a day
When I’ll walk alongside of him
To know know know him
Is to love love love him
And I do
I really do
And I do
Why can’t he see?
How blind here he be?
Someday he’ll see
That he was meant just for me, oh oh oh oh
To know know know him
Is to love love love him
Just to see that smile
Makes my life worthwhile
To know know know him
Is to love love love him
And I do
I really do
And I do
Songwriters: Phil Spector
