6    4  4    4   5 -4 -4 -4 -4
When I was just a wee lit-tle lad,
4    4    4     5 -4
Full of health and joy,
6   -6 -6    -6   -5    6   6 6
My fa-ther home-ward came one night
4     -4   -4 5 4 -4
And gave to me a toy.
6  4    4    4 5 -4 -4 -4
A won-der to be-hold it was
-4     4  4   5 6     -5
With man-y col-ors bright
6    -6    -6 -6      7 -6 6 6 5
And the mo-ment I laid eyes on it,
4 4   -4  -4    5        4 -4
It be-came my heart's de-light.

6   6     4      4   4   4
It went "Zip" when it moved
5     -4      -4    -4 -4
and "Bop" when it stopped,
5      4       4     5   6    -5
and "Whirrr" when it stood still
-6 -6 -6 7     -6     6   6 5
I nev-er knew just what it was
4    4  -4   -5 5 -4 4
and I guess I nev-er 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 the other,  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 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 marvelous toy  Would be chugging from behind.

The years have gone by too quickly it seems,  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!
Neither one of us knows just what it is  But he loves it just like me!

It still goes... [Refrain]
The real title is Marvelous Toy. N'tran
