Lyrics

Once upon a time there was a toy soldier
And he lived in the playroom
Once upon a time there was a toy soldier
With a whiplash in his hand

And every night little girl Sadie would take all her clothes off
And wind up the toy solider
And he'd raise his whip and say to her

CHORUS
  "On your knees, little Sadie
  Little Sadie, on your knees
  Taste the whip, and love not given lightly
  Taste the whip, and bleed for me"

Little Sadie loved her little toy soldier
And she'd run home from school each day
Little Sadie loved her little toy soldier
And she'd lock the door so she could play

Little Sadie got ambitious and
Wound the clockwork soldier tighter
So he could whip her harder and harder

CHORUS

One day, Sadie wound and wound
And wound and wound
And wound and wound
Till suddenly
The little toy soldier's spring went 
  Woo-woo-woo-woo-woo
  Arrgghhhh!

And he beat her to death!
