This time each year in our hometown
The county fair comes our way
Where the folks gather round to be happy
And spend their day

A-here's what happened now
I soon decide that I'd take with me
The most specialist girl I knew
I had her pack us a lunch and on down the dirt road we flew

Hurry hurry, step right up and win your girl a stuffed koala bear
(Aww, come on Nicky, win me a koala bear)
Break the balloon with a dart
Yes you son, come up here, win your girl a stuffed koala bear
(Oh please, win me a koala bear)
Break the balloon with a dart, come on son, step right up
Get up there, that's a boy

Right then I knew what I had to do
(Hurry, hurry)
Before that day was through
(Step right up)
I had to win a stuffed doggie
(Hurry, hurry)
Or I'd break her poor heart in two
(Win a prize)

A let me tell you now
I passed up a chance when I walked by a booth
(Hurry, hurry)
Where you throw a dart and break a balloon
(Step right up)
I snuck by a couple more, but I had to get caught real soon
(Hurry, hurry)
(Win a prize)

Step right up, test your strength
Come on son, ring the bell with the hammer
(Aww, come on muscles)
Win your girl a stuffed koala bear
(Ohh)

Come on son, are you a man or a weakling?
Yes you, step up here and test your strength
Win your girl a stuffed koala bear
(Come on baby)
Come on son

I hit the rubber stump just as hard as I could
(Hurry, hurry)
But I didn't make it ring the bell
(Step right up)
I tried again and again
(Hurry, hurry)
But I just didn't do so well
(Win a prize)

Can you believe it now
Up walked a fella and he tapped me on the shoulder, said
(Hurry, hurry)
I can win your girl a prize
(Step right up)
So, he flexed all his muscles and knocked the bell up in the sky
(Hurry, hurry)
(Win a prize)

Yeah, the big strong guy knocked the bell in the sky
(Hurry, hurry)
(Step right up)
Took my girl and the doggie away
(Step right up son, test your strength)
Yeah, the big strong guy knocked the bell in the sky
(Come on kid, ring the bell)
Took my girl and the doggie away
(Ah, goodbye muscles, I don't need you anymore)

Yeah, the big strong guy knocked the bell in the sky
Took my girl and the doggie away
(Loser)
