The marvelous toy (Video)

When I was just a wee little lad full of health and joy
My father homeward came one night and gave to me a toy
A wonder to behold it was, with many colors bright
And the moment I laid eyes on it, it became my heart's delight.

It [went/*still goes] "zip" when it moved, and "bop" when it stopped, and "brrr" when it stood still.
I never knew just what it was, and I guess I never will.

The first time that I picked it up, I had a big surprise
'cause right on the bottom were two big buttons that looked like big green eyes
I first pushed one and then I pusehd the other, and then I twisted its lid
And when I set it down again, here is what it did:


It first marched left, and then marched right, and then marched under the chair
And when I looked where it had gone, it wasn't even there
I started to cry, but my daddy laughed, 'cause he knew that I would find
when I turned around my marvelous toy would be chugging from behind.



The years have gone by too quickly, it seems, and I have my own little boy
And yesterday I gave to him my marvelous little toy
His eyes nearly popped right out of his head, and he gave a squeal of glee
And neither one of us knows just what it is, but he loves it, just like me.


And it only costs one hundred million dollars today
