This second Harry Nilsson song fared better than the first ("The Story Of Rock And Roll") and was released on Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. While Micky played the drums on every Headquarters track, this is the only one he plays drums on for the fourth album.

Lyrics:

La, la-la-la, la-la-la, la, n'da, n'da!

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy
You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night
And gave up without a fight
Your're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

You're not the kind of girl to tell your mother
The kind of company you keep
I never told you not to love no other
You must of dreamed it in your sleep

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy
You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night
And gave up without a fight
Your're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

Youre not the kind of girl to tell your mother
The kind of company you keep
I never told you not to love no other
You must of dreamed it in your sleep

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy
You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night
And gave up without a fight
Your're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

La, la-la-la, la-la-la, la, n'da, n'da!
