Toys Я Us Child

This has been rattling around in my head for months. Finally finished it:

Guess I have to grow up
Can’t be a Toys Я Us kid
There are no more toys, they went the way
That other stores did
Like K·B Toys, and Lionel Corp,
And the Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop
(Chop chop)
At least I got to grow up
Playing in their aisles!
I used to be a Toys Я Us child.
