Effervescing Elephant

  1. Crazy Diamond (1993)

    An effervescing elephant
    with tiny eyes, and great big trunk
    once whispered to the tiny ears
    the ears of one inferior
    that by next june he'd die, oh yeah!
    because the tiger would roam
    and the little one said oh my goodness I must stay at home
    and everytime I hear a growl
    I'll know the tiger's on the prowl
    and I'll be really safe you know
    The elephant he told me so
    And everyone was nervvy, oh yeah!
    and the message was spread
    to zebra, mongoose, and the dirty hippopotamus
    who wollowed in the mud and chewed
    his spicy hippoplancton food
    and tended to ignore the word
    prefering to survey a herd
    of stupid water bison, oh yeah!
    and the jungle took fright
    and ran around for all the day and the night
    but all in vain because you see
    the tiger came and said to me,
    "You know I wouldn't hurt not one of you
    I much prefer something to chew
    you're all too scant, oh yeah!"
    He ate the elephant...
