The Lyrics

I've yet to find any toy that interests my toddler son more than the box it came in.
(Toy Piano Intro)

Just take those old boxes off the shelf
I'll sit and play here with 'em by myself
Today's toys they ain 't got the same soul
I like a cardboard box that's all

Don't take me to a Chuckie Cheezo
That tank of balls is full of bacterio
For ten minutes I will be screamin' and bawl
I want my cardboard box that's all

Still like that cardboard box that's all
Just like my binky it just soothes the soul
Eventhough I'm not really that old
I know I want my box that's all

Don't buy no fancy thing that flashes and spins
I'll end up playing with the box it came in
Those baby toy designers got it all wrong
Give me the cardboard box that's all

Call me an infant, call me what you will
Say I'm a rugrat, say my diaper is filled
My Dad said 50 bucks did I just blow
Not so Dad, the box is sweet you know

So babies tell your parents, make some noise
People with PHDs should not make toys
Today's playthings ain't got the same soul
I just like the cardboard box that's all

Thanks Alvin...not too much play on this song. Is Bob Seger that obscure? Sheesh I'm getting old.

You've done an excellent job on of the best done to this song.....authentic homespun humor.....lack of votes and comments is probably due to a slow fives
