  • Parody of Tom Paxton's "The Marvelous Toy". (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    When I was just a wee little lad, full of traumas and tears
    My father bought a toy for me confirming all my fears
    A horror to behold it was, and it filled me full of dread
    And the moment I laid eyes on it I knew he wished me dead
    I went

    OUCH!! when it cut and YAAHH!! when it shocked
    And GGAUGGH!! when it caught in my throat
    I merely went and picked it up and that was all she wrote

    The Consumer Product Safety Guide said this toy takes many lives
    With lead paint and electrical hazards and edges just like knives
    But my daddy wants no sissy son and he says to "be a man"
    So I went and picked it up again and it sliced off both my hands
    I went


    I first ran left and then dashed right, then hid under a chair
    But the toy pursued relentlessly till it found me hiding there
    I reached for the switch to turn it off but my skin touched a hot bare wire
    And a thousand volts shot up my arm and set my clothes on fire
    I went


    Well, somehow I survived those years; now I have my own little boy
    And yesterday I gave to him my dangerous little toy
    His eyes nearly popped right out of his head; in fact they did, and now he's blind
    'Cause he didn't see those two sharp spikes that were sticking up from behind
    Now he goes

    (Stavro Arrgolus)
