THE MARVELOUS TOY (John Denver)Lyric and chords as used by the Irish Rovers (use capo on 3rd fret) Guitar chords by Marc Fahrbach.

Intro: G-D-A-D


When [D]I was just a [A]wee little lad, [D]full of health and [A]joy.
My [G]Daddy homeward [D]came one night and [E7]gave to me a [A]toy
(One [G]Christmas Morning [D]I received a [E7]marvellous little [A]toy)

A [D]wonder to be[A]hold it was with [D]many colours [G]bright
And the moment I laid [D]eyes on it, it be[E7]came my heart's de[A]light.

It went [D]zip when it moved

[A]Bop when it stopped,

[D]Whirrrrr when it stood [G]still
I never knew just [D]what it was and I [A]guess I never [D]will.


The [D]first time that I [A]picked it up I [D]had a big sur[A]prise.
For [G]right on its bottom were [D]two big buttons that [E7]looked like big green [A]eyes.
I [D]first pushed one and [A]then the other, [D]then I twisted it's [G]lid.
And when I set it [D]down again, well [E7]here is what it [A]did.


It [D]first marched left and [A]then marched right, [D]then marched under the [A]chair
And [G]when I looked where [D]it had gone it [E7]wasn't even [A]there.
I [D]started to cry, my [A]Daddy laughed he [D]knew just what I'd [G]find.
When I turned around my [D]marvellous toy came [E7]chugging from be[A]hind.


[D]Years have gone by too [A]quickly it seems, now I [D]have my own little [A]boy.
And [G]yesterday I [D]gave to him my [E7]marvellous little [A]toy
His [D]eyes nearly popped right [A]out of his head and he [D]gave a squeal of [G]glee...
Neither one of us knows just [D]what it is but he [E7]loves it just like [A]me.

It still goes [D]zip when it moves

[A]Bop when it stops,

[D]Whirrrrr when it stands [G]still
I never knew just [D]what it was and I [A]guess I never [D]will.
I [G]never knew just [D]what it was and I [A]guess I never [D]will

I [G]never knew just [D]what it was and I [A]guess I never [D]will
