"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


Every jack-in-the-box be sealed
Till my wounded pride be healed
Stuffed animals, unstuff 'em!
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 extracts from the number-one lawkeeper, 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!
