The Marvelous Toy Lyrics

When I was just a wee little boy, full of health and joy.
One Christmas morning I received The Marvellous Little Toy.
A wonder to behold it was with many colours bright
And the moment I laid eyes on it, it became my heart's delight.

It went zip when it moved and bop when it stopped whirrrrr 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.
For right on it's bottom were two big buttons that looked like big green eyes.
I first pushed one and then the other, then I twisted its lid.
And when I set it down again, this is what it did.

It went zip when it moved and bop when it stopped whirrrrr when it stood still
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

It first marched left and then marched right, then marched under a 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 marvellous toy would be chugging from behind.

It went zip when it moved and bop when it stopped and whirrrrr when it stood
still
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

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

It still goes zip when it moves and bop when it stops, whirrrrr when it
stands still
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.
