John Denver – The Marvelous Toy Lyrics

Lyrics

1, 2, 3, 4

When I was just a wee little boy, full of health and joy
One Christmas morning I received a marvellous little toy
A wonder to behold it was, with many colors bright
And the first trime I laid eyes on it, it became my heart's delight

It went zip when it moved
Bop when it stopped
Whirrr 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, then the other, then I twisted it's lid
And when I set it down again, this is what it did

It went zip when it moved
Bop when it stopped
Whirrr when it stood still
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will

It first marched left, 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, my daddy laughed, he knew that I would find
When I turned around my marvelous toy chugging from behind

It went zip when it moved
Bop when it stopped
Whirrr when it stood still
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will

The years have passed 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, 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
Bop when it stops
Whirrr when it stands still
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will
