What did I get for trusting Him

What did I get for trusting Him

Music written for ‘Toymaker the Musical’


“I think the toymaker has a plan for me”

“A plan for you?

Please Thomas, that’s ridiculous"

Verse 1

I remember those days

Those ‘merry’ days

When I was a boy and fell for his lies

Once I was younger and ignorant

Now I have seen the light

Verse 2

What did I get for trusting him?

Look at my face, this outlandish paint

Check out my hat and hideous clothes

Am I a clown or a joke?

Verse 4

If I had a choice, I’d be a star

Dressed up to the nines

The spotlight is mine

Dancing and singing the night away

The lights applause

They’re all for me

Verse 5

So Thomas young man

Don’t be naive

The Toymaker doesn’t have plans for you

Don’t say I didn’t warn you about this man You’re in for a huge surprise!

Verse 3

Now I am stuck in this puny box

All I can do is wait and hide

Turn the crank up and I’ll spring a surprise

I’m laughing but I’m seething inside


Once I was bitten, now I’m twice as shy

Away from his fond illusions

Cos I have grand dreams

To be someone else

This silly entertaining is just an insult
