PlotEdit

As the kids go to the docks, one of them asks what that thing behind them is. Silly Willy points out to them that it's a box. Some of the kids were desperate to find out what's in it but Silly Willy would not let them open it. When asked why, Silly Willy tells them in song about when it was discovered.

TriviaEdit

Whenever "a ******" is heard, the listener can fill in blanks to replace three stomps (i.e. Octopus, Doggone thing, etc.)

IntroEdit

Ariki: What's that?
Silly Willy: Oh, that? Uh, that's a box.
Hillary: Well We can see that.
Silly Willy: Well, it's a very troublesome box. You don't want to mess with it.
Patty: What's in it?
Silly Willy: Believe me, you don't want to know.
Jenna: Why not?
Silly Willy: It's a very long story.

LyricsEdit

Silly Willy:
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 ******
Right before my eyes!
Together:
(RPT last 2 lines of stanza)


Silly Willy:
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:
Caveman:

"Oh, get out of here with that ****** before I call a cop!"

Together:
(RPT last 2 lines of stanza)


Silly Willy:
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...
A lady:
" Oh, get out of here with that ****** and don't come back no more!"
Together:
(RPT last 2 lines of stanza)


Silly Willy:
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 ******,
He turned around and ran!
Together:
Oh! (RPT last 2 lines of stanza)


Silly Willy:
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:
Townsfolk:
"Get out of here with that ****** 'n' take it far away!"
Together:
Oh! (RPT the townsfolk's phrase once more)


Silly Willy:
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 ****** no matter what you do!
ALL:
(RPT last 2 lines)
Ooooh, you'll never get rid of the ******, no ma-a-a-a-tter-r-r-r... wha-a-a-t you-ou... do-o-o-o-o-o-o!
