An Elephant Song – Tantor

[TUNE: MARIA]

 

OH TANTOR, I ONCE MET AN “ELE” NAMED TANTOR

THEN SUDDENLY I FOUND

HE’D FALLEN ON THE GROUND….BELOW

 

OH TANTOR, POACHERS HAVE FINALLY FOUND YOU

BUT THERE’S NO NEED TO FEAR

THEY’RE NOT LOOKING FOR YOUR EARS, AT ALL

 

OH TANTOR, YOUR IVORIES ARE SO PRICELESS

THEY CAN MAKE PIANO KEYS AND SCRIMSHAW ARTISTRY ….SO FINE

 

OH TANTOR, BELT IT LOUD, IT’S LIKE MUSIC PLAYING

BELT IT SOFT, AND IT’S ALMOST LIKE SPRAYING

OH TANTOR….I’LL NEVER STOP SAYING,

“OH TANTORRRRRRR”

 

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PACHYDERM….I EVER SAWWW

OH TAAAANNNNTOOOORRRR !!!
