"No More Toymakers to the King", also known as "First Toymakers to the King (Reprise)" on its original album release, is a song written for the 1970 Rankin/Bass Christmas television special Santa Claus is Comin' to Town. It is a villainous reprise of "The First Toymakers to the King" in which Burgermeister Meisterburger declares that toys are now unlawful in Sombertown.

Burgermeister: I have a job for you to do! Now take this down.

It's a difficult responsibility
That you accept from the number-one lawmaker, me
Have it known throughout the land from sea to sea
There'll be no more toymakers to the King!

All the tin soldiers - melt them down
Wash the face of every clown
Each bouncing ball - deflate it
No, I don't want to debate it!
The ballerinas who pirouette
Arrest their musical toes
Outlaw the dolls and sink the boats!
They bring me only woes!

[Repeat Chorus]

Every jack-in-the-box be sealed
Till my wounded pride be healed
Stuffed animals - unstuff them!
When a child objects - rebuff 'em!
No more drummers who rat-a-tat-tat
No buglers who root-a-toot-toot
Don't let me see another toy
Or you will feel my boot!

Grimsley: It's… a… difficult responsibility
That he extract from the number-one law keeper, me
Be it known throughout the land from sea to sea

Burgermeister: Toys are hereby declared, illegal, immoral, unlawful, and anyone found with a toy in his possession will be placed under arrest and thrown in the dungeon!

Grimsley: There'll be no more… toy… makers… to the King!
