D               A7           D                A7
When I was just a wee little lad, full of health and joy,
G             D             E7                A7
My father homeward came one night and gave to me a toy.
D             A7               D           G
A wonder to behold it was with many colors bright
G              D                  A    D               A7
And the moment I laid eyes on it, It became my heart's delight. 
[ Tab from: ]
D                  A7                      D                         G
It went "Zip" when it moved and "Pop" when it stopped, "Whirrr" when it stood still
G                 D               A7              D
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 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... Chorus
