Kevin Chamberlin – Horton Hears A Who lyrics

Jungle Citizens:
Who who wah dah
Who who who wad dah dah dah
Who who wad dah
Who who

On the fifteenth of May
In the Jungle of Nool
In the heat of the day,
In the cool of the pool,
He was splashing

Jungle Citizens:

Enjoying the jungle's great joys
When Horton the elephant

Bird Girls:
Horton the elephant

Horton, Bird Girls & All:
Horton the elephant

Heard a small noise.

Mayor's Voice:
Help! Help!

Bird Girl #1:
So Horton stop splashing
He looked toward the sound

That's funny...

Bird Girls:
Thought Horton.

There's no one around.

Bird Girl #3:
Then he heard it again!

Bird Girl #2:
Just a very faint yelp

As if some tiny person
Were calling for help.

Mayor's Voice:
Help! Help!

I'll help you

Bird Girls:
Said Horton

But who are you and where?

Bird Girls:
He looked and he looked.
He could see nothing there

But a small speck of dust
Blowing past,

Horton & Bird Girls:
Through the air.

I say! How confusing! I've never heard tell
Of a small speck of dust that's able to yell.
So you know what I think? Why I think that there must
Be someone on top of that small speck of dust.
Some poor little person
Who's shaking with fear
That he'll blow in the pool!
He has no way to steer.
He's alone in the universe!
I'll just have to save him
Because after all,
A person's a person, no matter how small
A person's a person, no matter how--

Horton: Jungle Citizens:
Small Who who wah dah
Who who who wad dah dah dah
Who who wad dah
Who who

Bird Girls #1, 2, & 3:
So gently, and using
The greatest of care,
The elephant streched
His great trunk through the air,
He lifted the dust speck
And carried it over and placed it down,


Bird Girls:
On a very soft clover.
