Song Lyrics

"Billy Bean built a machine to see what it could do.

He made it out of sticks and stones, and nuts and bolts and glue.

The motor sang Chuffaty Bang, Rattata Rattatarator,

And all of a sudden a picture appeared on the funny old cartoonerator

Billy Bean built a machine to see what it would do,

It did the funniest things he'd seen,

So he called it his fun machine, machine,

Billy Bean and his fun machine."
