Soldier

Can I hear the story about the one legged soldier? Please?
Um, can you tell me the story of the soldier? Please?

One more time

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 other's dreams,
Under the stars shining bright.
But they were to shy to speak of love, to speak of love.

One day the boy sat them on the window sill,
To watch for the enemy comin' 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 I 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.

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.
And he was lonely so lonely for a friend, he was so lonely.

As he sat on the mantel place 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, blazin' 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.

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 other's destiny as they sit on the
   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.
