The above is a piece of music (generally known by people over the age of 30years !!!???) composed by Leon Jessell in the days of yore.

However, I am aware that some lyrics may exist for the piece, as I was able to quote a few when I heard the music being played recently.

My query, then - does anyone know the complete (or partial) lyrics to this piece, please?

I think the piece you want is actually called PARADE OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS by Leon Jessel.

The Internet Archive has several recordings; click here to see search results.

These lyrics are copied from the web site Hymns and Carols of Christmas: (That web site also has a MIDI file and a Noteworthy Composer file.)


PARADE OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS
Words by Ballard MacDonald, 1922. Music by Leon Jessel, 1905.

The toy shop door is locked up tight
And ev'rything 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 ev'ryone

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

Daylight is creeping,
Dollies are sleeping,
In the toyshop window fast;
Soldiers so jolly,
Think of each dolly,
Dreaming of the night that's past.
When in the morning,
Without a warning,
Toyman pulls the window shade,

There's no sign of the Wood Brigade
Was ever out upon parade.

Jim, very many thanks for your efforts on my behalf. I really do appreciate your kindness.

However, if you would like to look at my thread 'mid 50's song' (which I responded to a few moments ago), then you will see that the lyrics that I am looking for have been partially supplied by 'GUEST' on 14th Nov.

Thank you

Jonibee

Player Piano with the MacDonald "The toy shop door is locked up tight..." lyrics down the side.
