Our cartoon animation interpretation  of

THE MARVELOUS TOY!
+ Sing-Along with Peter, Paul & Mary

This is a wave file. Loading may be slower on some systems.

Words and Music by Tom Paxton
Recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary in the 1960's.
(If other's recorded too, well I only have this version on album and CD.)

 

Verse I

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 heart's delight!

(Chorus)

It went "Zip" when it moved,
And "Pop" when it stopped,
And, "Whirrr" when it stood still.
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will.

Verse II

The first time that I picked it up
I had a big surprise.
Cause right on the bottom
Were two big buttons
That looked like big green eyes.
I first pushed one and then the other,
Then I twisted it's lid.
And when I set it down again,
Here is what it did:

(Chorus)

It went "Zip" when it moved,
And "Pop" when it stopped,
And, "Whirrr" when it stood still.
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will.

Verse III

It first marched left,
And 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
Cause he knew that I would find...
When I turned around my marvelous toy
Would be chugging from behind!

(Chorus)

It went "Zip" when it moved,
And "Pop" when it stopped,
And, "Whirrr" when it stood still.
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will.

Verse IV

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,
And he gave a squeal of glee!
Neither one of us knows just what it is
But he loves it just like me!

(Chorus)

It still goes "Zip" when it moves
And "Pop" when it stops,
And, "Whirrr" when it stands still.
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will!

We did not put one on this page.
We felt it would distract from the colorful toy.
But, we have over 1,200 to choose from.
