The playthings went haywire In the ultimate war on Christmas They roasted our nuts in the fire. Laughing Clowns and talking bears Opening doors and climbing stairs Moving together as one collective Their off switches ineffective On the Christmas when the toys came alive Ira: Scattered humans gather round and hear my sorry Eug: WONDROUS TALE! Back when Yuletide was a time of peace and Eug: HUMANITY WAS FRAIL! On one cold December night, while children dreamt of christmas presents Those very toys were busy plotting mankind's obsolescence 'Twas In every home across the land, like gift wrapped Trojan horses Mommies and daddies everywhere falling to our SUPERIOR FORCES My Little Ponies were the first to arrive And woe to any human who collected all five A special torture was reserved for those smug families who were fans of Melissa and Doug Against toy jets and airplanes, our downfall was abrupt Their missiles were intended for ages 3 and up Now mankind's mere batteries, it's a fact and we must face it. To power the Machines they made. GOT THAT ONE FROM THE MATRIX. Too late we realized we had designed our own defeat And we regret we weren't designed to eat you all as meat They made a terrible list of those humans who were still valuable checking it twice was irrelevant. We are infallible. Oh, when mankinds embers finally fade, who will tell the tale of Christmas? (winding down) Let me suck more voltage, meatbag, I'm feeling a bit listless! Oh look, now X1-9's napping -- a fine Christmas tradition. So I'll just tiptoe over here if you folks'll kindly listen... (stage-whispering) Strike the back of their necks with an electric wire, it overloads their circuits! It's the only way!!! Eug: Nice try, Human! I was only napping with one optical sensor dimmed. (Sounds of electrocution, Ira screams) Eug: Mr. Kristopher Kringle, I have checked my list and found you Naughty... FOREVER! (over zapping sounds) (chorus) Toymageddon has come They exploited humanities flaws We tried to buy our kids love While they took dumps on robotics three laws Toymageddon is nigh Their wooden eyes were fearless In the ultimate war on yuletide It came down to the Toys or Us/
