Toy at the Bottom of the Box

Words: © 2002 by Tom Smith
Music: "There's a Hole at the Bottom of the Sea" (trad.)
Just a silly kid's song. I actually wrote it while driving to MarCon, almost an improv, and it pretty much stayed the same.

There's a toy in the bottom of the box,
There's a toy in the bottom of the box,
There's a toy, there's a toy,
There's a toy in the bottom of the box.

And now I'm looking for the toy in the bottom of the box,
I'm looking for the toy in the bottom of the box,
There's a toy, there's a toy,
There's a toy in the bottom of the box.

And now I'm digging through the cereal, looking for the toy...

And now I'm making a mess while digging through the cereal...

And now my mom got mad 'cause I'm making a mess...

And it's a stupid spoon from a bad cartoon,
It wasn't worth it 'cause I got hit,
Got spanked and grounded 'cause Mom got mad
'Cause I made a mess while digging through the cereal
Looking for the toy at the bottom of the box,
It's a stupid spoon from a bad cartoon,
It wasn't worth it 'cause I got hit,
Got spanked and grounded 'cause Mom got mad
'Cause I made a mess while digging through the cereal
Looking for the toy at the bottom of the box.

There's a toy, there's a toy --

(Insert a silly one-liner here. Examples:)

  • Collect all sixteen to make a GIANT ROBOT!
  • Ooooooh... Cracker Jack!
  • Snausages!?
  • Some Assembly Required?
  • Snacks. Why did it have to be snacks?
  • (pull out a box of Sugar Smacks) Smacks. Why did it have to be Smacks?
  • It's a coupon! "If you can read this, you need to go to the dentist. Dial 1-800-TOOTH-ROT."
  • (gulp) ... a very... small... toy....

-- There's a toy at the bottom of the box!
