Both: Toyland, Toyland, beautiful girl and boy land ...

(a few bars of carnival music)

Shirley Jones: They're closing up Girl Land. Some say it's a shame.
It used to be busy, then nobody came.
And other folks tell you they're glad that it's done,
'Cause Girl Land was never much fun ...

(more carnival music playing through next verse)

Jack Cassidy: Welcome to Girl Land, my good little girls!
Admission's a wink and a toss of your curls.
There's fun for all, from eight to eighty.
You go in a girl, and you come out a lady!

Shirley Jones: They're closing down Girl Land. Some say it's a crime
To be losing the trees you're forbidden to climb.
And other folks say it was always a bore
To wait for a boy who would open the door
To the funhouse ...

(still more carnival music playing through next verse)

Jack Cassidy: Wonderful Girl Land, the island of joys,
Where good little girls pick up after the boys!
So come on in. Look about.
You go in a girl ... and you never get out! (wicked laugh)

Shirley Jones: They're boarding up Girl Land. Some say it's too bad.
They try to remember some fun that they had.
And other folks say it was no fun at all,
Being a girl in Girl Land.

And soon, in a park that was Girl Land before,
You'll do what you like and you'll be who you are,
As you wander in and wander out
And pretty soon forget all about ...

Jack Cassidy: Girl Land, Girl Land, beautiful Girl Land ...

(carnival music plays slower, sounding run-down, and finally stops)
