toy boy lyrics – mika

[verse 1:]
i’m a wind up toy
in an up-down world
if you leave me all alone
i’ll make a mess for sure

i’ve a heart of gold
in the smallest size
leave me in the dark
you never hear me cry

[pre-chorus 1:]
more than an ill*stration
points of articulation
come to life on a br*ss spring
such a wonderful plaything

[verse 2:]
its a cruel cross
that i have to bear
if you come a little close
i’m going to pull your hair

more than just a toy
in a patched blue suit
when you hold me in your arms
i’m just a boy like you

but your momma thought
there was something wrong
didn’t want you sleeping
with a boy too long

it’s a serious thing
in a grown-up world
maybe you’d be better
with a barbie girl

[pre-chorus 2:]
you knew that
i adored ya
but you left me in georgia
toys are not sentimental;
how could i be for rental?

[verse 3:]
she’s the meanest hag
that has ever been
pulled out my insides
with an old safety pin

i’m the sorest sight
now i feel like trash
clothes are made of rags
and they don’t even match

so she dressed me up
as the man she loved
and threw me in a box
when she had had enough

now the light of day
i no longer see
she stuck her voodoo pins
where my eyes used to be

[pre-chorus 3:]
accidentally tragic
victim of her black magic
had a boy once who loved me
now he’s so afraid of me

[verse 4:]
on a long lost day
when you’re grey and old
you’ll be there remembering
your old toy boy

when your only son’s
wondering what to be
tell him the story of
a boy like me
