The Most Wonderful Day of the Year (The Island of Misfit Toys)

We're on the Island of Misfit Toys. Here we don't want to stay.
We want to travel with Santa Claus in his magic sleigh.
A pack full of toys means a sack full of joys
For millions of girls and for millions of boys
When Christmas Day is here. The most wonderful day of the year.
A jack-in-the-box waits for children to shout:
"Wake up. Don't you know that it's time to come out?"
When Christmas Day is here. The most wonderful day of the year.
Toys galore scattered on the floor. There's no room for more.
And it's all because of Santa Claus.
A scooter for JImmy, a dolly for Sue,
The kind that will even say: "How do you do?"
When Christmas Day is here. The most wonderful day of the year.
When Christmas Day is here. The most wonderful day of the year.
Toys galore scattered on the floor. There's no room for more.
And it's all because of Santa Claus.
An electric train hidden high on a shelf
That Daddy gives David but then runs himself.
When Christmas Day is here. The most wonderful day of the year.
When Christmas Day is here.
The most wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day of the year.
