"Toy Soldier" as written by Magnus Wallbert, Sean Garrett, Christian Karlsson and Pontus Johan Winnberg....
Yeah, smash on the radio bet, I penned it!
Britney (break me off)
Oh, toy soldier
Oh, toy soldier
Oh, toy soldier
Oh, toy soldier

I'm out the door, it's automatic, simple babe
I'm like a fire, bottle busting in your face
So tired of you being up in my space
How much more could I take?
I'm tired of privates driving, need a general that ain’t weak

When I shut the door, leaving with my bag
Hit the scene in my new wagon
Bet he gonna wish he knew the type of fun I'm getting into
Peek-a-boo, he good, doing things you wish you could
He's not talking, he's just walking
Like them city boys from New York

This time I need a soldier, a really bad ass soldier
That know how to take, take care of me
I'm so damn glad that's over
This time I need a soldier, I'm sick of toy soldiers
A boy that knows how to take care of me
Won't be just coming over

I don't want no more (break me off)
Oh, toy soldier
I'm simply sick and tired of those
Oh, toy soldier
I don't want no more
Oh, toy soldier
I'm simply sick and tired of those

I want it more than ever now
I realized that they ain't listening
Like a princess supposed to get it
That's why I'm dusting off my fitted
Coming back looking delicious
Yes I know they want to kiss me
Now I hold them at attention
Cause new Britney's on a mission

When I shut the door, leaving with my bag
Hit the scene in my new wagon
Bet he gonna wish he knew the type of fun I'm getting into
Peek-a-boo, he good, doing things you wish you could
He's not talking, he's just walking
Like them city boys from New York

This time I need a soldier, a really bad ass soldier
That know how to take, take care of me
I'm so damn glad that's over
This time I need a soldier, I'm sick of toy soldiers
A boy that knows how to take care of me
Won't be just coming over

Brit, I heard that he was saying he's still in love with you, and
Brit, I heard he said he could stay if he wanted to, and
Brit, I heard every man out here is wanting you now
Brit, I heard, I heard, what you gonna do now?

This time I need a soldier, a really bad ass soldier
That know how to take, take care of me
I'm so damn glad that's over
This time I need a soldier, I'm sick of toy soldiers
A boy that knows how to take care of me
Won't be just coming over

(I need, I'm so sick of toy soldiers)
A boy that knows how to take care of me
Won't be just coming over
Coming over
Coming over
(I need, I'm so sick of toy soldiers)
A boy that knows how to take care of me
Won't be just coming over

    General CommentThe song is simply about needing a man, not a boy :) I've just realized the same, so this is totally relateable to me lol

    General Commentthis is my favorite song on the new album! to me, it sounds like it was derived from her experience with k-fed...haha, hence the "i'm so damn glad that's over". i love it.

    General CommentThe collab between Sean Garrett and Bloodshy/Avant is awesome. Probably one of the best Britney songs.
    It's funny because Sean Garrett was the same producer who did Destiny's Childs 'Solider', Britney's version is wayyyy better

    General CommentI think this song is a direct reference to Kevin Federline. Saying he's just a "toy soldier", not good enough for her.

    General CommentI don't care how much you like the song. SHUT UP!

    I think it's about not finding a man that will step up and being used to settling for toy soldiers. And then you're sick of it, and you're just like fuck it I want a real man.
