Thread Name: Lyr Add: Murderous Toy (parody of Marvelous Toy)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Murderous Toy
Gypsy, it's a parody of Tom Paxton's The Marvelous Toy, which is in the DT. Don't know if it has a sound file with it, but you could check. I know the original and the parody scans beautifully to the tune.

Failing that, I know the TP tune was printed in Sing Out Magazine back in the '60s and in one of their song reprints. Sorry, don't know which of his albums it was on or who covered it, tho' I'm sure a couple of groups did maybe the Chad Mitchell Trio or PP&M.
