Song: "The Thing" sung by Phil Harris



While I was walking down the beach one bright and sunny day

I saw a great big wooden box a-floating in the bay

I pulled it in and opened it up and much to my surprise

Ooh, I discovered a boom-boom-boom, right before my eyes

Oh, I discovered a boom-boom-boom, right before my eyes





THE STORE

I picked it up and ran to town as happy as a king

I took it to a guy I knew who'd buy most any thing

But this is what he hollered at me as I walked in his shop

Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom, before I call a cop

Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom before I call a cop





I turned around and got right out, a-running for my life

And than I took it home with me to give it to my wife

But this is what she hollered at me as I walked in the door

Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom, and don't come back no more

Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom, and don't come back no more



THE WIFE IS SCREAMING!






I wandered all around the town until I chanced to meet

A hobo who was looking for a hand-out on the street

He said he'd take most any old thing, he was a desperate man

But when I showed him the boom-boom-boom, he turned around and ran

Oh, when I showed him the boom-boom-boom, he turned around and ran

THE HOBO






I wandered on for many years, a victim of my fate

Until one day I came upon St. Peter at the gate

And when I tried to take it inside, he told me where to go

Get outta here with that boom-boom-boom and take it down below

Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom and take it down below




ST. PETER




The moral of this story is if you're out on the beach

And you should see a great big box and it's within your reach

Don't ever stop and open it up, that's my advice to you

Cause 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!
