Here are the lyrics to the Phil Harris song "The Thing" (c):

While I was walking 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
Oh, I discovered a [boom-ba-boom - drum beat - no words] right before my eyes
Oh, I discovered a [boom-ba-boom] 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
"Oh, get out of here with that [boom-ba-boom] before I call a cop!"
"Oh, get out of here with that [boom-ba-boom] 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
"Oh, get out of here with that [boom-ba-boom], and don't come back here no more!"
"Oh, get out of here with that [boom-ba-boom], and don't come back here no more!"

I wandered all around town until I chanced to meet
A hobo who was lookin' for a handout on the street
He said he'd take most any old thing, he was a desperate man
But when I showed him the [boom-ba-boom], he turned around and ran
Oh, when I showed him the [boom-ba-boom], he turned around and run

I wandered many years a victim of my fate
Until I came upon St. Peter at the gate
And when I tried to take it inside he told me where to go,
"Get out of here with that [boom-ba-boom], and take it down below!"
"Oh, get out of here with that [boom-ba-boom], and take it down below!"

The moral of this story is: If you're out on a beach
And should you 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
'cuase you'll never get rid of the [boom-ba-boom], no matter what you do
Oh, you'll never get rid of the [boom-ba-boom, no matter what you do! [Boom-boom]
