Little wooden soldier boy,
How he's bored to be a
Sitting on the mantelpiece,
Was not his idea of peace.
So one night at half past
He ordered all the toys to come.
He told them all a good game to play,
The teddy bears and wind-up toys,
Together made a lot of noise.
side formed into ranks,
Proud 'cause they had plastic tanks.
High up on the shelf to
The soldier had to jump with glee.
At last before his eyes he saw,
With a battle raging on the floor,
The soldier boy was urging more.
the floor was strewn with bits,
Fur and stuff and building kits.
The soldier boy was
As smoke clouds rolled across the sky.
He gave a last triumphant
And fell into the fire
