Tell me, rosy little boy,
Listen, little maiden, too, Do you love a fine new toy ?
Yes, you say, of course you do. Then your thought to Mother tell,
And she'll take her little maid, And her little boy as well,
To this wonderful Arcade.
Active apes that climb up sticks,
Swords and guns and trumpets bright, Wooden horses, wooden bricks,
Big fat lambs with fleeces white, Dolls that smile and dolls that cry,
Soldiers ready for parade, All are here for you to buy,
In this wonderful Arcade.
Toys are hanging up on strings,
Toys are laid in tempting rows, And each shop with pretty things
Is so crammed it overflows. Little girls and little boys
Oft are puzzled, we're afraid, Which to choose of all the toys
In this wonderful Arcade.
