1, 2, 3, 4
When I was just a wee little boy, full of health and joy
A wonder to behold it was, with many colors bright

Bop when it stopped
I never knew just what it was

For right on it's bottom were two big buttons
I first pushed one, then the other, then I twisted it's lid

Bop when it stopped
I never knew just what it was

And then marched under a chair
I started to cry, my daddy laughed, he knew that I would find

Bop when it stopped
I never knew just what it was

And yesterday I gave to him my marvelous little toy
Neither one of us knows just what it is but he loves it just like me
It still goes zip when it moves
Whirrr when it stands still
And I guess I never will
And I guess I never will
