Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers
The Crystals Lyrics


The toy shop door is locked up tight
And everything is quiet for the night
When suddenly the clock strikes twelve, the fun's begun

The dolls are in their best arrayed
There's going to be a wonderful parade
Hark to the drum, "oh here they come" cries everyone

Hear them all cheering, now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch
Bayonets flashing, music is crashing
As the wooden soldiers march

Sabers a-clinking, soldiers a-winking at each pretty little maid
Here they come, here they come
Here they come, here they come
Wooden soldiers on parade

The toy shop door is locked up tight
And everything is quiet for the night
When suddenly the clock strikes twelve, the fun's begun

The dolls are in their best arrayed
There's going to be a wonderful parade
Hark to the drum, oh here they come cries everyone

Hear them all cheering, now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch
Bayonets flashing, music is crashing
As the wooden soldiers march

Hear them all cheering, now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch
Bayonets flashing, music is crashing
As the wooden soldiers march

Hear them all cheering, now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch

The toy shop door is locked up tight
And everything is quiet for the night
When suddenly
The clock strikes twelve
The fun's begun

The dolls are in their best arrayed
There's going to be a wonderful parade
Hark to the drum
Oh, here they come
Cries everyone

Hear them all cheering
Now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch
Bayonet's flashing
Music is crashing
As the wooden soldiers march

Sabres a-clinking
Soldiers a-winking
At each pretty little maid
Here they come, here they come
Here they come, here they come
Wooden soldiers on parade

The toy shop door is locked up tight
And everything is quiet for the night
When suddenly
The clock strikes twelve
The fun's begun

The dolls are in their best arrayed
There's going to be a wonderful parade
Hark to the drum
Oh, here they come
Cries everyone

Hear them all cheering, now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch
Bayonet's flashing, music is crashing
As the wooden soldiers march

Hear them all cheering, now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch
Bayonet's flashing, music is crashing
As the wooden soldiers march

The toy shop door is locked up tight

Theres going to be a wonderfu parad
Hark to the drum

At each pretty little maid
Here they come here they come
Here they come here they come

I had not known the track before. You hardly need to listen to it to know you are going to like it & that it is the real stuff!

My God, I haven't heard this for about 40 years. What a good album that was/is. My parents had it back in the 60s.

Fred K

Same here

Finally got the Phil Spector album for Christmas last year and it is awesome! This is my favorite song from the album and one of my favorite unheard Christmas songs. The Crystals are an awesome group!

Fred K

Well stated

Zach Smith

Song really kicks ass
It's combining a sort of innocent vibe with a driving beat
perfection
