    Tom Paxton, the writer of this song, attended the Clerk Typist School at Fort Dix while he was in the army. This song is a fanciful ode to his electric typewriter.

    This may be nothing more than a silly song about a toy nobody figured out, but it does sound quite like a small child's view of the good old spinning top. Perhaps the reason he still didn't know what it was years later when he gave his old toy to his own son is that his father had taught him the wisdom of allowing a child to marvel at something and see it from a child's point of view. But that's just a guess. Not everything really needs to be explained, some things are just meant to be enjoyed, like that marvelous toy, and much like this song.
