Pa Did It!!

The Train Of Cars That Santa Brought Is Out Of Kilter Now
While Pa Was Showing How They Went He Broke The Spring Somehow

They Used To Run Around A Track--At Least They Did When He
Would Let Me Take Them In My Hands An' Wind 'Em With A Key

I Could 'A' Had Some Fun With 'Em, If Only They Would Go
But, Gee! I Never Had A Chance, For Pa Enjoyed Em So

The Automobile That I Got That Ran Around The Floor
Was Lots Of Fun When It Was New But It Won't Go No More

Pa Wound It Up For Uncle Jim To Show Him How It Went
And When Those Two Got Through With It The Runnin' Gear Was Bent

An' Now It Doesn't Go At All
I Mustn't Grumble Though
'Cause While It Was In Shape To Run My Pa Enjoyed It So

I've Got My Blocks As Good As New, My Mitts Are Perfect Yet
Although The Snow Is On The Ground I Haven't Got Em Wet

I've Taken Care Of Everything That Santa Brought To Me
Except The Toys That Run About When Wound Up With A Key

But Next Year You Can Bet I Won't Make Any Such Mistake
I'm Going To Ask For Toys An' Things That My Pa Cannot Break
