Marvelous Toy. Чудесная игрушка

Отличная песня для тренировки прошедшего времени

When I was just a wee little lad full of health and joy
My father homeward came one day 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

Refrain
It went "zip" when it moved and "bop" when it stopped
And "whirr" when it stood still
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

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

Refrain
It went "zip" when it moved and "bop" when it stopped
And "whirr" when it stood still
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

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 and my daddy laughed, he knew that I would find,
When I turned around, my marvelous toy, chugging from behind.

Refrain
It went "zip" when it moved and "bop" when it stopped
And "whirr" when it stood still
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

Well, the years have gone by too quickly, it seems,
And 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.

Refrain
It still goes "zip" when it moves and "bop" when it stops
And "whirr" when it stands still
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.
