Little Tin Soldier
Once in a town in the black forestA little white toy shop stoodAnd a little tin soldier with only one legLived in a castle of woodAcross the room on another shelfStood a little glass caseAnd a tiny ballerina lived in there

All in a dress of lace

And from which the little tin soldier stoodThey could see each other so clearAnd the tiny ballerina watched over there

With a love that was so dear

Then one day sadness cameThe tiny ballerina was soldThe little tin soldier was thrown awayInto the gutter he flowedAnd the water carried himInto the sea and many far off landsHe made many children happy

As he passed through their tiny hands

And then one day they met againIn a house in the land of IreAnd when the clock’s on the wallStrike the midnight on

They jumped into the fire

And in that fire they shall stayForever and a day’Cause the fire of loveIs the fire of Lord

Just like the peace of all
