Intro:
G D A D

     D             A               D                  A
When I was just a wee little boy, full of health and joy
       G              D             E7                A
One Christmas morning I received a marvellous little toy
   D           A                 D            G
A wonder to behold it was, with many colors bright
         G                D                 E7                A
And the first time I laid eyes on it, it became my heart's delight

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

G D A D

     D                 A              D             A
The first time that I picked it up I had a big surprise
     G                          D                   E7                   A
For right on it's bottom were two big buttons that looked like big green eyes
   D                  A               D                  G
I first pushed one, then the other, then I twisted it's lid
      G            D            E7             A
And when I set it down again, this is what it did

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

G D A D

    D                    A                      D                    A
It first marched left, then marched right and then marched under a chair
      G                 D               E7           A
And when I looked where it had gone it wasn't even there
    D                 A                  D                G
I started to cry, my daddy laughed, he knew that I would find
        G                D              E7             A
When I turned around my marvelous toy chugging from behind

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

D A D A G D E7 A
D D D D G G A D

     D                     A                   D                  A
The years have passed too quickly it seems, I have my own little boy
     G           D              E7               A
And yesterday I gave to him my marvelous little toy
    D                        A                    D                 G
His eyes nearly popped right out of his head, he gave a squeal of glee
        G                      D                E7                 A
Neither one of us knows just what it is but he loves it just like me

               D
It still goes zip when it moves
 A
Bop when it stops
  D                     G
Whirrr when it stands still
   G                D
I never knew just what it was
       A             D
And I guess I never will
   G                D
I never knew just what it was
       A             D
And I guess I never will
