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

How'd you like to be a spotted elephant?
Or a choo-choo with square wheels on your caboose!
Or a water pistol that shoots... jelly?
[Spoken:] We are all Misfits!

If we're on the island of unwanted toys
We'll miss all the fun with the girls and the boys
When Christmas day is here
The most wonderful, wonderful
Wonderful, wonderful
Wonderful day of the year!
