Melody: Up on the House top
 Here is a window in the toy shop. Here’s a balloon that goes pop.
 Here is a top that spins in a ring. Here is a bird that can sing.
 Here is a soldier who can walk. Here is a doll that can talk. 
Here is a funny jumping jacks man.  Here’s a sleeping raggity Ann
Say goodbye to the toys. Shhh, quiet. No more noise.
