One Toy Soldier

One toy soldier stands alone
With his drum down by his side
One toy soldier on his own
With his drum to keep the time

He keeps the beat, a marching beat
He keeps the beat so true
He's one small toy for one small boy
But his heart is oh so blue

Who can mend my broken drum
Will it be as good as new
I must play when morning comes
If I don't what shall I do?

He keeps the beat, a marching beat
He keeps the beat inside
While children sleep in dreams so deep
There's a secret he must hide

For he keeps the beat, a marching beat
He keeps the beat so true
He wants to sing and hopes to bring
Happy Christmas day to you

He keeps the beat, a marching beat
He keeps the beat inside
Someone has come to mend his drum
Now his heart lights up with pride

So he keeps the beat, a marching beat
He keeps the beat so true
When morning comes
He plays his drum
Happy Christmas day to you
Happy Christmas day to you
Happy Christmas day to you
Happy Christmas day to you
