HANSON lyrics : "Soldier"

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...
