The Thing

While I was walkin' down the beach
One bright and sunny day
I saw a great big wooden box
A-floatin' in the bay
I pulled it in and opened it up
And much to my surprise
Ooooh
I discovered a
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
Right before my eyes
Ooooh
I discovered a
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
Right before my eyes

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 anything
But this is what he hollered at me
As I walked in his shop
Ooooh
Get out of here with that
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
Before I call a cop
Ooooh
Get out of here with that
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
Before I call a cop

I turned around and got right out
A-runnin' for my life
And then 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
Ooooh
Get out of here with that
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
And don't come back no more
Get out of here with that
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
And don't come back no more

I wandered all around the town
Until I chanced to meet
Fred, the town policeman
Who was walking on his beat
He wasn't scared of anything
He was a big brave man
But when I showed him the
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
He turned around and ran
Ooooh
When I showed him the
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
He turned around and ran

I wandered on for many years,
With my box in hand
I tried to give it away
To anyone in the land
They'd open the lid and take a look
And this is when they'd say
Get out of here with that
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
And take it far away
Ooooh
Get out of here with that
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
And take it far away

The moral of the 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
(Stomp, stomp stomp)
No matter what you do
Ooooh
You'll never get rid of the
(Stomp, stomp, stomp)
No matter what you do
Ooooh
You'll never get rid of the
(Stomp, stomp stomp)
No matter what you do
