      About "The Marvelous Toy"

      Lyrics for John Denver - "The Marvelous Toy"

      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
