Victor Herbert & Kenny Baker



Music: Victor Herbert
Lyrics: Glen MacDonough

When you've grown up, my dears,
And are as old as I,
You'll often ponder on the years
That roll so swiftly by,
My dears, that roll so swiftly by,
And of the many lands
You will have journeyed through,
You'll oft recall
The best of all
The land your childhood knew!
Your childhood knew!


Toyland! Toyland!
Little girl and boyland,
While you dwell within it,
You are ever happy then.
Childhood's joyland,
Mystic merry Toyland!
Once you pass its borders you can ne'ver return again!

When you've grown up, my dears,
There comes a dreary day
When 'mid the locks of black appears
The first pale gleam of gray,
My dears, the first pale gleam of gray
Then of the past you'll dream
As grayhaired grownups do,
And seek once more
Its phantom shore,
The land your childhood knew!
Your childhood knew!
