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?
