[2019] Just an elevator?

that only goes up and down??
  
~ frown~
   
Child, you're lacking imagination  
See you later, Alligator!  
   
As for you, Crocodile ...  
   
~ smile ~  
   
I wish you  
would stay a while;  
take a further tour with me  
Together, we can explore the four  
corners of my factory ( and there may  
even be a room or two or three  
I myself have never seen before! )  
   
We can zoom about in this fabulous  
glass observatory that zips and glides  
and dips but never collides as it flip de trips  
and loop de loops -  
   
Oh! Look down there!  
Let's say goodbye    
   
~ wave ~  
   
to the Gloops!  
   
Hey, Little Bucket Boy!  
There's more to this silly story    
you have yet to read  
and I need -  
   
~ cough ~  
   
and I think  
you would be great at  
keeping me company  
   
~wink~  
   
Charlie, would you take a ride with me?
