The Marvellous Toy

When I was just a wee 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 colours bright

And the moment I laid eyes on it it became my heart’s delight

It went ‘zip’ when it moved and ‘bop’ when it stopped

And ‘whirr’ when it stood still

I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will
