archived at Nevada).  Great little song called Marvelous Toy.

Marvelous Toy - Tom Paxton
=============

    D            A7               D                      G
When I was just a wee little lad  Full of health and joy
   G               D                  E            A7
My father homeward came one night And gave to me a toy
     D        A7                 D            G
A wonder to behold it was with many colors bright
        G             D                E7               A7
And the moment I laid eyes on it. It became my hearts delight


Chorus:
        D           A7                        D                   G
It went zip when it moved, bop when it stopped and whir when it stood still
   G              D                 A7            D
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will


The first time that I picked it up I got a big surprise
For right on the bottom were two big buttons that looked like big green
eyes.
I first pushed one, then the other, then I twisted its lid
And when I put it down again, here is what it did.

    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, but my daddy laughed for he knew that I would find
When I looked around, my marvellous toy, just a'chugging from behind.

    Chorus

Well, the years have gone by too swiftly it seems, I now 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

    Chorus


I've been doing this song for MANY years and (if I remember correctly
without my guitar in hand) generally play it in C but the chord progression
is simple enough to allow it to be played in whatever key fits your vocal
range.

Regards,

    When I was just a wee little lad full of health and joy
       F................C..................D7...........G7
    My father home-ward came one night and gave to me a toy
        C............G7...............C.........F.........
    A wonder to behold it was, with many colors bright
    ..................F...............D7.................G7.
    The moment I laid eyes on it, it became my hearts delight

    CH:
            C.......................G7...............
    It went ZIP when it moved, and BOP when it stopped
         C...................F.......................
    And WHIRRR when it stood still
     ...................C...............G7...............C
    I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will

  2)The first time that I picked it up I had a big surprise
    For right on it's bottom were 2 big buttons that looked like big green eyes
    I first pushed one and then the other and then I twisted it's lid
    And when I set it down again, this is what it did     CH:

  3)It first marched left and then marched right and then marched under a chair

  4)The years have gone by quickly it seems, I have my own little boy
    And yesterday I gave to him, my own marvelous little toy
    His eyes nearly popped right out of his head and he gave a squeal of glee
    Neither one of us knows just what it is but he loves it just like me  CH:

    I always think of this as a Christmas song. I used periods between
    chords cuz my editor otherwise moves them around.
