Lyrics:

La, la-la-la, la-la-la, la, n'da, n'da!

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain The day after Santa came You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night And gave up without a fight Your're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

You're not the kind of girl to tell your mother The kind of company you keep I never told you not to love no other You must of dreamed it in your sleep

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain The day after Santa came You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night And gave up without a fight Your're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

Youre not the kind of girl to tell your mother The kind of company you keep I never told you not to love no other You must of dreamed it in your sleep

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain The day after Santa came You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night And gave up without a fight Your're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

La, la-la-la, la-la-la, la, n'da, n'da!
