The marvelous toy

The Marvelous Toy
When I was jsut 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 laid eyes on it
It became my heart's delight.

It went zip when it moved
Bop when it stopped
whin 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 its bottom
Were two big buttons
That looked like big green eyes
I first pushed one and then the other
And then I twisted its lid
And when I set it down again
here is what it did
Well, the years have gone too quickly it seems.
