After the moon comes up, all of the toys behind closed doors
open their eyes and move their squeaky joints across the floor.
Rocking horses run, tinker toys assembling,
twisting mobile stars, dancing dolls and spinning cars.

Stop, will you stop? Will you stop and speak to me?
Wake, I know you're awake. Move your mouth and speak to me.
I'm not the kind who will take it for granted,
no, I'm not the kind who will take it for granted.

How I would like to know all the toy soldiers in a row,
marching to and fro, all the tin soldiers in a row.
Tiny painted mouths, how I wish you'd utter now,
words of nursery rhyme, tongue and teeth all click in time.

Stop, will you stop? Will you stop and speak to me?
Wake, I know you're awake. Move your mouth and speak to me.
I'm not the kind who will take you for granted,
no, I'm not the kind who will take you for granted.

    General Commentthis song had always reminded me of this Christmas (?) movie I watched when I was really little (early 90s, before Toy Story came out). It was about toys that had like their own world when ever their owner when away (like toy story). I'm pretty sure it was Jim Henson and I'm pretty sure they aired it on Nichelodeon. I also remebered it freaked me out... kinda, even though it wasn't scary. So if anyone remembers PLEASE let me know the name of it.

    General CommentAh! I found it!
    I love imdb.com!

    It was called The Christmas Toy. It's from '86... a little bit before my time. I think maybe I watched the TV show though (The Secret Life of Toys).
