The Lyrics

I saw "Toy Story 3" the other night, it inspired me to write this song, I think it captures the spirit of the movie pretty well.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIb6AZdTr-A
You leave home during adolescent life
Your mother says "Now you're gonna store those toys, right?
Or they're outta here, they're not untrashable, son!"

But toys they wish you'd stay young
Your toys just wish you'd stay home

You box things for an attic reunite**
Your sister says "Wow, this room be mine in some nights
When you're outta here, I cannot wait 'til you're gone"

But toys they wish you'd stay home
Your toys, just wish you could…
Be stalled, you really caaaan't
Stay yooooung…

When the years of play has gone
Your toys just wish you'd stay young
Your toys just wish you'd stay home

Toys, they want
You to stay young, boy
But you'll leave

Some toys take a downward turn
They're sorted away from the kids to get burned
I wanna think that mine had endings more fun

Your toys they wish you'd stay young
Your toys, just wish you could…
Be stalled, you really caaaan't
Stay hoooome…

When the years of play has gone
Your toys just wish you'd stay home
Your toys just wish you'd stay young

Toys, they want
You to stay young, boy
But you'll leave

They just want you
They just want you
They just want you
They just want you
Toys just wish you'd stay young
Toys just wish you'd stay home
They just want you
They just want you
They just want you
They just want you
Your toys just wish you'd stay home
Your toys just wish you'd stay young
When the years of
When the years of play has gone
When the years of play has gone
Oh, toys
Toys just wish you'd stay young...

THE SONG PLAYS OUT THIS WAY
FOR A LONG, LONG TIME...

** "reunion" did not fit the rhyme, but hey, they're toys, let them have a reunite…

Big, Big fan of the Toy Story series! This was great minimum subject and it looked like the song overwhelmed you but overall good work.

This was a very cute song idea Peter, great execution and much more fun than the original (though I like the original-don't get me wrong) Easily 5s, great job

That was a great idea Pete. This song can hit home with so many people. Great job!

To me, an abandoned forgotten toy is a metaphor for lost innocence. I therefore feel a slight undercurrent of sadness in this very clever parody. ;D

Toys that get tossed out have a way of showing up on Antiques Roadshow in somebody else's hands.

Reminded me of "The Velveteen Rabbit", so I'll echo OMR's sentiments. 555 :)

"The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys." - old saying, at least in the US.

Good job...I wrote about toys, yesterday...and you, today...yours, are the innocent kind, tho'...but when I read the title, I thought it might lean that way

"He who dies with the mostest toys is the winner, so 'tis said. Who dies with much, who dies with ought, either way, is dead". ("The Collector's Prayer", Patrick McWilliams). Let me know if you find it.

"He who dies with the youngest girlfriend wins". ... I think the competition is between Roman Polanski and R. Kelly.... (and in all of these, you "win" because you had a fun life ere croaking)
