So I guess I fell in love, with a toy soldier
He told me that our love would be marching on, hoorah hoorah
He told me that our love was mighty strong, hoorah hoorah
And guess I believed you, 'cause you were my baby
Why would I doubt you, when you said you loved me
But I didn't know you were the enemy

Boy the only one who made me cry, is you
And the only one I had to fight, is you
And it was you who told me

He said, that I would never have to fight again
He said, that I would never have to cry again
He said he'd had been to the battle field, 
My heart is safe with him
All my trust I gave it to him
So I guess I fell in love with a toy soldier

You told me that you would take care of me, 
you lied, you lied
You told me that you was the best for me, 
you lied, you lied

'Cause you came up empty
I feel like you tricked me
Everything you said you'd give me, you couldn't give me
Yeah oh
'Cause the only one who ever made me cry, is you
And the only one I had to fight, is you
And it was you who told me

He said, that I would never have to fight again
He said, that I would never have to cry again
He said he'd had been to the battle field, 
My heart is safe with him
All my trust I gave it to him
So I guess I fell in love,
I fell in love with a toy soldier

I let down my guard because you were my guard
But who protects me know
'Cause I gave you my heart and you tore it apart
Ooh you let me down
Ooh baby

He said, that I would never have to fight again
He said, that I would never have to cry again
He said he'd had been to the battle field, 
My heart is safe with him
All my trust I gave it to him
So I guess I fell in love, with a toy soldier

I gave all my love to him hoorah hoorah
I gave all my love to him hoorah hoorah
