Track Name: Santa's Got Toys
the chain has rusted off my bike
my sister’s dolls just ain’t right
these GI Joes have lost their joy
there are no tanks left to destroy

i cannot find my baseball mitt
there’s no more magic in this set of tricks
i watched the frisbee go down the drain
the powerlines clipped the wings of my airplane

yeah, it’s hard to ignore
everything’s busted & broken, or even more
so yeah i believe because Santa’s Got Toys

that kite just vanished in the air
i checked the bag but there’s no marbles in there
my superball bounced right outta town
none of these hula hoops are still round

yeah, it’s hard to ignore
everything’s busted & broken, or even more
so yeah i believe because Santa’s Got Toys

leave some records to play and i’ll fly
drop off a board and i’ll take that ride
got an extra camera i’ll shoot thru the sky
anything you bring i’ll give it a try

we’re down to one last bit of chalk
my sister cancelled all her games of hopscotch
had a pogo stick it snapped in half
who knows if that boomerang is ever coming back

yeah, it’s hard to ignore
everything’s busted & broken, or even more
so yeah i believe because Santa’s Got Toys
