Lyrics

It's a difficult responsibility
That you accept from the number-one lawmaker, me
Have it known throughout the land from sea to sea
There'll be no more toymakers to the King!

All the tin soldiers, melt them down
Wash the face of every clown
Each bouncing ball, deflate it
No, I don't want to debate it!
The ballerinas who pirouette
Arrest their musical toes
Outlaw the dolls and sink the boats!
They bring me only woes!

It's a difficult responsibility
That you accept from the number-one lawmaker, me
Have it known throughout the land from sea to sea
There'll be no more toymakers to the King!

Every jack-in-the-box be sealed
Till my wounded pride be healed
Stuffed animals, unstuff them!
When a child objects, rebuff 'em!
No more drummers who rat-a-tat-tat
No buglers who root-a-toot-toot
Don't let me see another toy
Or you will feel my boot!

It's a difficult responsibility
That he extract from the number-one law keeper, me
Be it known throughout the land from sea to sea

[Toys are hereby declared illegal, immoral, unlawful, and anyone found with a toy in his possession will be placed under arrest and thrown in the dungeon!]

There'll be no more toymakers to the King!
