POTD [Tuesday]

Toy Soldier

"Step by step
Heart to heart
Left, right, left
We all fall down
Like toy soldiers
Bit by bit
Torn apart
We never win
But the battle wages on
For Toy soldiers . . ."

~Martika (<---does anyone else remember her? I used to love Kids Incorporated!!)

Happy Tuesday everyone!


  1. OMGosh! I loved that song!!! Now it is stuck in my head! Except as an adult, I found out it is all about drugs. Go figure. Aren't they all???

  2. Sarah! I loved that song!! Thanks for bringing it out of that place in my brain where old (but cool) lyrics go when they are neglected.

    Pretty sure that was a favorite of mine at the ole' Cameron Aquatic Center!

  3. Oh Yes! I remember. My girlfriend becky and I had a dance we made up to it. We performed in her bedroom (I think we stole the tape from her big sister), and you know that falling dramatically onto her bed was the finale...
