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 its lid
And when I set it down again, here is what it did: 


It first marched left, and then marched right and 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. 


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! 

It still goes... Chorus
