Un Elefante

I have not yet found an ending to this song, except to count up until the children are just starting to get bored. It's still a ton of fun.
In the meantime, check out this neat video!



Un elefante se balanceaba
sobre la tela de una araña
Como veía que no se caía
fue a llamar a otro elefante.

Dos elefantes se balanceaban
sobre la tela de una araña,
Como veían que no se caían
fueron a llamar a otro elefante.

Tres elefantes se balanceaban
sobre la tela de una araña,
Como veían que no se caían
fueron a llamar a otro elefante.

Cuatro elefantes...
Cinco elefantes...
Seis elefantes...
etc...


One elephant balanced
on the web of a spider
When he saw that he wouldn't fall,
he called another elephant.

Two elephants balanced
on the web of a spider
When they saw that they wouldn't fall,
they called another elephant.

Three elephants balanced
on the web of a spider
When they saw that they wouldn't fall,
they called another elephant.

Four elephants...
Five elephants...
Six elephants...
etc...
Also, a clever English version:
One elephant balanced carefully on the web of a spider
She saw she wouldn't fall, so she called another elephant beside her

Two elephants balanced carefully on the web of a spider
They saw they wouldn't fall, so they called another elephant o'er beside her

Three..

Four..

Five elephants balanced carefully on the web of a spider
The web broke; the bug called a doctor and his insurance provider.
