This toy is ok for playing
But don’t go breaking it’s heart
Enhanced with real emotion
Stroke a key and make it start

But that toy starts a lot of trouble
Never leave it alone
And those toys are still in production
There’s one in every home

This toy was made for loving
Then leaving without a trace
That toy is a murderous junkie
Stab you with a smile on it’s face

That toy sets a bad example
It’s just killing time
The other toys don’t know any better
They all fall into line

Oh boy the joy of a toy
High maintenance machines
Oh boy the joy of a toy
Now they’ve got hopes and dreams

This toy’s got a lot of things going
It’s got a lot of soul
Cries out for a lot of attention
Like Major Tom to ground control

That toy dont wanna know a thing about it
It’s got a mind of it’s own
And that toy is a weak little puppet
Send in the clones

Oh boy the joy of a toy
High maintenance machines
Oh boy the joy of a toy
Now they’ve got hopes and dreams

Now this toy has an education
Really bright and shiny too
But dummies always seem to run things
And they can’t even tie there shoes

Now Toy-Town’s overrun with stupid dummies
And like I said just killing time
The other toys don’t know any better
Falling for dummy lies

Oh boy the joy of a toy
High maintenance machines
Oh boy the joy of a toy
Now they’ve got hopes and dreams
