All Of Your Toys - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
Once upon a once in a while
It's hard to remember to smile
Just like all of your toys
Can't you see I don't wanna play
I don't need it
Can't you say you want me to stay
I'd believe it
Just like all of your toys
CHORUS:
When all of your play things
Someday disappear
Girl, will you be happy
With nothing but tears?
With nothing but tears?
Once upon a once in a while
It's hard to remember to smile,
Just like all of your toys
Don't you ever feel kind of sad?'
Cause you're lonely
Think about the love that we had
Are you lonely?
Just like all of your toys
CHORUS
Ah...
Just like all of your toys, I don't wanna be
Just like all of your toys, I don't need to be
Just like all of your, just like all of your toys...I should have known I'd be alone
No, no, no I don't need it
Oh, don't you have me believe it
Just like all of your toys
