THE THING
By Arthur Godfrey

As I was walking down the beach one bright and sunny day
I saw a great big box a-floatin' in the bay.
I pulled it in and opened it up and much to my surprise
Oh, I discovered a (boom-boom-boom) right before me eyes.
Oh, I discovered a (boom-boom-boom) right before me eyes.

Well, I picked it up and I ran to town, as happy as a king.
I took it to a guy I knew who'd buy most anything.
But this is what he hollered at me as I walked into his shop:
"Get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom) before I call the cop!"
"Get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom) before I call the cop!"

I turned around and got right out, a runnin' for me life.
I thought I'd take it home with me and give it to me wife.
But this is that she hollered at me as I walked through the door:
"Get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom) and don't come back no more!"
"Get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom) and don't come back no more!"

So the moral of this story is: If you're out on the beach
And you should spy a wooden box, and it's within your reach
Don't ever stop to open it up, that's my advice to you
Oh you'll never get rid of the (boom-boom-boom) no matter what you do.
Oh, you'll never get rid of the (boom-boom-boom) no matter what you do.^^^
