I've got no time for fairy stories 
I'm not a little girl 
So you can leave me all alone 
And turn of the lights as well 
If you were frightened then listen 
But I don't think you'd like it 
Such a nice kid 

[Chorus]
Nobody's lookin' now 
I throw my toys around 

Somebody's being very bad 
I wonder who it could be 
Somebody's gon' to get in trouble 
I know it isn't me 
I'm just a little angel 
But cha don't know what I've done 
When your backs turned 

[Chorus]

Pick up those building blocks 
Chop off the baby's locks 
Swing dolly by her hair 
Put down that teddy bear 
Slam dunk a happy clown 
I throw my toys around 

I've got no time for bedtime stories 
I'm not a little child 
Everything makes me furious 
And everything makes me wild 
If you are frightened 
Then whistle and I'll come running to you 
As you boo hoo 

[Chorus: x2]

I throw my toys around 
I throw my toys around 

I throw my toys around 
I throw my toys around 

I throw my toys around 
I throw my toys around 

I throw my toys around 
I throw my toys around 

I throw my toys around 
I throw my toys around
