Toyland (1903)
(w) Glen MacDonough (m) Victor Herbert (I) Musical Extravaganza Babes in Toyland by Bessie Wynn
[Verse 1] When you’ve grown up, my dears,
And are as old as I, you’ll often ponder on the years
That roll so swifty by, my dears, that roll so swiftly by.
And of the many lands you will have journeyed through,
You’ll oft recall the best of all, the land your childhood knew,
The land your childhood knew.

[Chorus] Toyland, toyland! Little girl and boy land.
While you dwell within it, you are ever happy then.
Childhood’s joyland! Mystic merry toyland.
Once you pass its borders, you can ne’er return again.
