When I was just 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 I laid eyes on it
It became my hearts delight

[Chorus:]
It went zip when it moved
Bop when it stopped
Whirr 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
Here is what it did

[Repeat 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 and my daddy laughed
For he knew that I would find
When I turned around
My marvelous toy
Chugging from behind

[Repeat chorus]

Well, 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
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
And bop when it stops
And whirr 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
