My man thought he was raising sam,
I said, "Give it to me baby, you don't understand
Where to put that thing,
Where to put that thing,
Just press my button, give my bell a ring!"

Come on, baby, let's have some fun,
Just put your hot dog in my bun,
And I'll have that thing,
That thing-a-ling,
Just press my button, give my bell a ring.

My man's out there in the rain and cold,
He's got the right key, but just can't find the hole.
He says, "Where's that thing?
That thing-a-ling?
I been pressin' your button, and your bell won't ring!"

Spoken: Beat it out, boy! Come on and oil my button! Kinda rusty!

Now, tell me daddy, what it's all about,
Tryin' to pinch your sparkplug and it's all worn out,
I can't use that thing,
That thing-a-ling,
I been pressin' your button, and your bell won't ring!

Hear my baby, all out of breath,
Been working all night and ain't done nothing yet.
What's wrong with that thing?
That thing-a-ling,
I been pressin' your button, and your bell won't ring.

Hear me, baby, on my bended knee,
I want some kind daddy just to hear my plea,
And bring me that thing,
That thing-a-ling,
Just press my button, give my bell a ring.
