In the song The Teddy Bears' Picnic it is said that "if you go down to the woods to-day, you'd better go in disguise", because "the teddy bears [are having] their picnic", and that if you don't you'll be "in for a big surprise". It further says that if you do go, "you'd better not go alone" and that it is "safer to stay at home".

This always confused me when I was a child. What precisely would the teddy bears do to you if they saw you not in disguise?

I think I was under the impression they were violent teddy bears who would not appreciate human visitors and probably kill them, possibly torturing them first. Am I disturbed?
