“Cuddly Toy” Lyrics

La, la-la la, la-la la, la ta da-da da
La, la-la la, la-la la, la ta da-da da

You’re not the only cuddly toy
That was ever enjoyed by any boy
You’re not the only choo-choo train
That was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You’re not the only cherry delight
That was left in the night
And gave up without a fight, no
You’re not the only cuddly toy
That was ever enjoyed by any boy

You’re not the kind of girl to tell your mothers
The kind of company you keep
I never told you that I’d love no other
You must have dreamed it in your sleep
Stop, stop

You’re not the only cuddly toy
That was ever enjoyed by any boy
You’re not the only choo-choo train
That was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You’re not the only cherry delight
That was left in the night
And gave up without a fight, no
You’re not the only cuddly toy
That was ever enjoyed by any boy

You’re not the kind of girl to tell your mother
The kind of company you keep
I never told you that I’d love no other
You must have dreamed it in your sleep
Stop, stop

You’re not the only cuddly toy
That was ever enjoyed by any boy
You’re not the only cuddly toy
That was ever enjoyed by any boy

Davy: How can you do that?
Micky: I don’t know.
