I nearly wish I was over in the yard playin’ dinkies, buildin’ little roads in the gravel,....

French translation:Dinky Toys = petites voitures.
Explanation:
Ca remonte loin, moi je crois que c'est ca. Les petites voitures en métal... une marque.
Ils tracent même des petites routes... j'ai joué, moi, à ca... pas hier, bien sûr!
Ils jouaient aux (petites) voitures et tracaient des petites routes sur le gravier.
Salut, fieu!
