About this tab version
Capo on 3 for correct key = Bb - (on the original recording there is a key change up 1/2 tone after the 2nd chorus). Was this info helpful? Yes No
(Intro)
G C G Am D G

(Verse 1)
G                 D              G                  D
When I was just a wee little lad full of health and joy
   C              G                  A7           D
My Daddy homeward came one night and gave to me a toy
  G            D                G            C
A wonder to be hold it was with many colours bright 
                      G               A7      G         D
And the moment I laid eyes on it it became my heart's delight 

(Chorus)
            G                 D
And it went zip when it moved bop when it stopped
G                      C
Whirrrrr when it stood still
                  G                 Am      D     G   C G Am D G
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will

(verse 2)
G                     D              G            D
The first time that I picked it up I had a big surprise
    C                        G                    A7                    D 
For right on its bottom were two big buttons that looked like big green eyes
  G                    D              G                   C 
I first pushed one and then the other then I twisted it's lid
                  G               A7      G       D 
And when I set it down again well here is what it did 

(Chorus)
            G                 D
And it went zip when it moved bop when it stopped
G                      C
Whirrrrr when it stood still
                  G                 Am      D     G   C G Am D G
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will

(Verse 3)
G                         D                  G                      D
It first marched left and then marched right then marched under the chair 
    C                   G               A7         D
And when I looked where it had gone it wasn't even there
  G                 D                G                  C
I started to cry my Daddy laughed he knew just what I'd find
                        G                  A7       G      D
When I turned around my marvelous toy came chugging from behind
 
Chorus
            G                 D
And it went zip when it moved bop when it stopped
G                      C
Whirrrrr when it stood still
                  G                 Am      D     G   C G Am D G
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will

(Verse 4) 
G                      D                      G                  D
Years have gone by too quickly it seems now I have my own little boy
    C           G              A7               D
And yesterday I gave to him my marvelous little toy
    G                        D                      G                C             
His eyes nearly popped right out of his head and he gave a squeal of glee
                             G                 A7       G         D
Neither one of us knows just what it is but he loves it just like me

(Chorus)
D             G                 D
It still goes zip when it moves bop when it stops
G                       C
Whirrrrr when it stands still 
                  G                 Am      D     G   C G Am D G
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will
