“All of Your Toys” (rehearsal) Lyrics

[instrumental excerpt from “All Of Your Toys”]

?: Know what I mean? We’ll do the introduction a third time, right after the bridge. And then we can also go—

Just like all of your toys
Don’t wanna be
Just like all of your toys
Just like all of your
Just like all of your toys

Just like all of your toys
I don’t need to be
Just like all of your
Just like all of your toys

?: Hey Pete?
Peter: Yeah?
?: Would you come in here, for just a minute?
