This paper deals with an initial-boundary value problem for the damped Boussinesq equation

$u_{t t} - a u_{t t x x} - 2 b u_{t x x} = - c u_{x x x x} + u_{x x} + \beta(u^2)_{x x},$

where $t > 0,$ $a,$ $b,$ $c$ and $\beta$ are constants. For the case $a \geq 1$ and $a+ c > b^2$, corresponding to an infinite number of damped oscillations, we derived the global solution of the equation in the form of a Fourier series. The coefficients of the series are related to a small parameter present in the initial conditions and are expressed as uniformly convergent series of the parameter. Also we prove that the long time asymptotics of the solution in question decays exponentially in time.
