I'm An Elephant

A great chance to ham it up as an elephant.
Words and music by Matt Fernald, 2015.

  Voice only




Right foot, left foot, see me go
I’m huge! I’m slow!

I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m a big! (BIG!)
Elephant!
Bum bum-bum bum bum, bum bum, bum
Bum bum bum bum bum.

You see me thumping down the street
With my trunk and four fat feet.

I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m a big! (BIG!) Heavy! (HEAVY!)
Elephant!
Bum bum-bum bum bum, bum bum, bum
Bum bum bum bum bum.

Gone to get some water today
With a splash! And spray!

I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m a big! (BIG!) Heavy! (HEAVY!) Wet! (WET!)
Elephant!...

I get some water in my nose
And spray it everywhere I go

I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m a big! (BIG!) Heavy! (HEAVY!) Wet! (WET!) Playful! (PLAYFUL!)
Elephant!...

(Slower)
At night I curl up on the ground
With my family all around

I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m an elephant (echo)
I’m a big (BIG) Heavy (HEAVY) Wet (WET) Playful (PLAYFUL) Sleepy (SLEEPY)
Elephant!
