Our holiday track for 2018, a giant hug from us to you built on the basis of "Peace Carol" by John Denver and the Muppets.

lyrics

The Island of Misfit Toys


If nobody wants you, then you’re welcome here,
The home for unloveable toys that are weird
So come all you oddballs, outspoken and queer to the Island of Misfit Toys.


The doll that laughs instead of cries, the bird that swims instead of flies.
There’s no need to apologize at The Island of Misfit Toys.


So, put down your worries and plan your escape,
There’s a place that you’re welcome, whatever your shape.
Where no one is broken, ‘cause everyone breaks, The Island of Misfit Toys.


If you’re called Charlie instead of Jack, a train that wobbles off its track.
A dentist or a lumberjack, The Island of Misfit Toys.


So come, you unloveable weirdos and geeks
Come, you remarkable oddballs and freaks
Where no one is weird ‘cause we’re all so unique, The Island of Misfit Toys


The bear with wings instead of claws, the sheep that squawks instead of baas.
Bring all your weird and wondrous flaws to The Island of Misfit Toys.


The doll that laughs instead of cries, the bird that swims instead of flies.
There’s no need to apologize at The Island of Misfit Toys.
