The elephants, the elephants
I saw the elephants today
I saw the elephants today
And they were defending each other
And they were defending each other
Why can't east, west, north and south Africa
Oh stand up as one
Why can't east, west, north and south Africa
Oh stand up as one
Side up, side up Africa, side up by side
Move up, move up Africa, move up, move up as one
I saw the elephants today

The elephants the move as one
The elephants the move as one
So Africa should live as one
So Africa should live as one
I saw the elephants today
Side up, side up Africa, side up side by side
Side up, side up Africa, side up side by side
Move up, move up Africa, move up, move up as one
Move up, move up Africa, move up, move up as one
I saw the elephants today
I saw the elephants today
I saw the elephants today
And they were defending each other
And they were defending each other

Why can't east, west, north and south Africa
Why can't east, west. North and south Africa
Oh stand up as one, oh stand up as one
Side up, side up Africa, side up side by side
Side up, side up Africa, side up side by side
Move up, move up Africa, move up, move up as one
Move up, move up Africa, move up, move up as one
I saw the elephants today
The elephants, the elephants, the elephants
