Running through the toy store Tommy wants to play
he plays with all the hot wheels and the shiny roller skates
he opens up the game of life and plays it by himself
he shoots all of the dart guns and he climbs on all the shelves
he's rollin on the skateboards and he's playin g.i. joes
he's drivin all the tonka trucks as down the aisle he goes
swingin on a swing set playin hide and seek
no one ever finds him and sometimes he hides for weeks

Romper room Romper Room Captain Kangaroo
Mister Rodgers' Neighborhood
and picture pages too
Daddy can't you see? wont you tell me how
to get to Sesame street?

Sittin in a jail cell Tommy's locked away
thinks of all the times gone past and how he used to play
he eats his bread and water and he sleeps on his stone bed
and he can't get rid of all the god damn pictures in his head
no nothin's ever perfect so Tommy had to hide
his daddy used to beat him till he made his daddy die
now he don't have no Romper Room and he ain't got no friends
he ain't got no nothin and his nightmare never ends
