ChorusIt went Dzip when it A7moved, bop when it stoppedD and whir when it stGood still I nGever knew just Dwhat it was and I A7guess I never Dwill The first time that I picked it up I got a big surprise For right on the bottom were two big buttons that looked like big green eyes. I first pushed one, then the other, then I twisted its lid And when I put it down again, here is what it did. Chorus It first marched left, 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 for he knew that I would find When I looked around, my marvellous toy, just a'chugging from behind. Chorus Well, the years have gone by too swiftly it seems, I now have my own little boy And yesterday, I gave to him my marvelous little toy. His eyes nearly popped right out of his head, he gave a squeal of glee Neither one of us knows just what it is, but he loves it just like me Chorus I've been doing this song for MANY years and (if I remember correctly without my guitar in hand) generally play it in C but the chord progression is simple enough to allow it to be played in whatever key fits your vocal range.

CG7 When I was just a wee little lad full of health and joy
D7G7 My father home-ward came one night and gave to me a toy
CF A wonder to behold it was, with many colors bright
D7G7 The moment I laid eyes on it, it became my hearts delight

CF And WHIRRR when it stood still
