Elephants

An Elephant

An elephant goes like this and that,
(pat knees)
He's terribly big,
(hands high)
And he's terribly fat;
(hands wide)
He has no fingers,
(wiggle fingers)
And hs no toes,
(touch toes)
But goodness gracious,
What a long nose!
(curl hands away from nose)


The Elephant

The elephant has a trunk for a nose,
And up and down is the way it goes;
He wears such a saggy, baggy hide;
Do you think two elephants would fit inside?


Eletelphony

Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant -
No! no! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone -
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now Ive got it right.)

Howeer it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee -
(I fear Id better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)

Laura E. Richards


Elephant
(to the tune of "Here we go 'round the Mulberry Bush")

This is the elephant's tail so thin,
Tail so thin, tail so thin,
This is the elephant's tail so thin,
Swish, swish, swish.

These are the elephant's feet so huge,
Feet so huge, feet so huge,
These are the elephant's feet so huge,
Stomp, stomp, stomp.

This is the elephant's nose so long,
Nose so long, nose so long,
This is the elephant's nose so long,
Blow, blow, blow.

These are the animals all around,
All around, all around,
These are the animals all around,
Run, run, run!

An Elephant

An elephant is fat and strong,
His trunk is very, very long,
His tail and ears flap bugs away,
And keep him cool on hot, hot days.
