The elephant’s wide, the elephant’s big
when he walk along, he doesn’t do a jig.
His trunk is long and wiggly, too
and sometimes he doesn’t live in a zoo.
His trunk hangs down
and touches the ground
yet, sometimes it almost reaches the sky.
He’s even been know
to eat a lemon meringue pie.
His color is gray, he hasn’t much hair
he’s really very nice and we all should care.
So next time you meet an elephant on the street
you will already know that he is really sweet!
