Can I hear the story about the one-legged soldier? Please? And can you tell me the story of the soldier? Please? One more time Or I'll knock your nose off
Not so long ago in a toy room not so far away Lived a boy who had so many toys And he didn't know what to do with them all With them all, with them all Well, his favorite of all the toys Were the tin soldiers, the tin soldiers And the one that he loved the most Was the one with the missing leg
At night the toys would come alive Or that's how the story is told And there they met the soldier With the missing leg And the ballerina with the heart of gold At night they would share each others dreams Under the stars shining bright But they were too shy To speak of love, to speak of love
One day the boy sat them on the windowsill To watch for the enemy coming over the hill But when the wind it blew It knocked him into the street And the boys from the town they said Won't you look at the one-legged soldier? Let's stick him in a boat and send him far away 'Cause we can't find a use For a soldier with a missing leg
And he was lonely, so lonely for a friend And he was lonely, so lonely for a friend He was so lonely, yeah
As he floated past a river rat On his homemade boat Well, the boat began to sink And he sank to the bottom of the river He got swallowed by a fish Caught by a fisherman Sold to the family of the boy who had the toys
And the cook said, look at the one-legged soldier It looks just like the one we lost the other day Could this be the boy's tin soldier with the missing leg?
But he was lonely, so lonely for a friend, oh And he was lonely, so lonely for a friend He was so lonely, yeah Oh yeah so lonely, oh yeah
What about the ballerina?
As he sat on the mantle piece to dry from the river The ballerina who held his heart sat at his side And when they got up to dance with each other She fell by the fire blazing bright When he jumped to save her from the flames Their bases began to melt into one and the same And now they share each other's destiny Together forever they will be
And they are no longer lonely for a friend And they are no longer lonely for a friend No longer lonely, yeah No longer lonely Whoa, whoa Yeah, whoa No longer lonely, yeah
Well, not so long ago in a toy room not so far away Lived a boy who had so many toys And he played with them all With them all, with them all Well, he had a ballerina and a one-legged soldier Stuck together at the base And they share each others destiny As they sit on top of the mantel place
It's the story of the one-legged soldier The story of the one-legged soldier The story of the tin soldier With the missing leg
