Soldier Lyrics

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 ballarina?

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...
