Effervescing Elephant

Höfundur lags: Syd Barrett Höfundur texta: Syd Barrett Flytjandi: Syd Barrett Sent inn af: Anonymous
An [G]effervescing elephant
with [G7]tiny eyes and great big trunk
once [C]whispered to the tiny ear,
the [C7]ear of one in fear, you hear
that [G]by next June he'd die, Oh yeah!
And the tiger would [D]roam, the little one said,
"Oh my [D7]goodness -- I must stay at home!
And [G]every time I hear a growl,
I'll [G7]know the tiger's on the prowl,
And [C]I'll be really safe, you know,
the e[C7]lephant, he told me so."
[G]Everyone was nervous, Oh yeah!

And the message was [D]spread to zebra,
mongoose and the d[D7]irty hippopotamus
who [G]wallowed in the mud
and chewed his [G7]spicy hippo-plankton food
and [C]tended to ignore the word,
ref[C7]erring to a survey I heard of [G]stupid water bison
Oh yeah! And all the jungle took [D]fright,
and ran around for all the [D7]day and the night,
But all in [G]vain because,
you see, the tiger came and said,
"Who [G7]me? You know I [C]wouldn't hurt not one of you
I [C]much prefer something to chew,
and [G]you're all too scant."
Oh [C]yeah! He ate the [D]elep[G]hant.

An effervescing elephant
with tiny eyes and great big trunk
once whispered to the tiny ear,
the ear of one in fear, you hear
that by next June he'd die, Oh yeah!
And the tiger would roam, the little one said,
"Oh my goodness -- I must stay at home!
And every time 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."
Everyone was nervous, Oh yeah!

And the message was spread to zebra,
mongoose and the dirty hippopotamus
who wallowed in the mud
and chewed his spicy hippo-plankton food
and tended to ignore the word,
referring to a survey I heard of stupid water bison
Oh yeah! And all 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,
"Who me? You know I wouldn't hurt not one of you
I much prefer something to chew,
and you're all too scant."
Oh yeah! He ate the elephant.
