Put away forbidden playthings
Amusements and distractions
And dismantle the contraption
And carry it away

In time as beauty dissolves into glamour
It slips from your heart and falls under the hammer
Put away forbidden playthings
Put away forbidden playthings

And never return to pluck out that jewel
Or find the thrill that slumbers still
While suffering the dream of disobeying
Put away forbidden playthings
Put away forbidden playthings
Put away forbidden playthings
