I go 4-3-2-1
I go 1-2-3-4
Then I push a little button
And I open the door
Then I close it right away
'Cause there is no room for more
I'm the elephant elevator operator
(He's the elephant elevator operator)

Hey, I coulda been a salesman at a party goods store
Or a brave and handsome lifeguard on the New Jersey shore
But the job that I have chosen is the one I adore
I'm the elephant elevator operator
(He's the elephant elevator operator)

Wanna celebrate the elevator I'm the operator of
No elevator could be greater
Hey, it fits me like a glove!
1-2-3...

I go 4-3-2-1
I go 1-2-3-4
Then I push a little button
And I open the door
Then I close it right away
'Cause there is no room for more
I'm the elephant elevator operator
(He's the elephant elevator operator)

Oh, I coulda been a cute and dashing aviator
Or I coulda been a jockey but it's kind of a bore
No, the job that I have chosen offers me so much more
I'm the elephant elevator operator
(He's the elephant elevator operator)

(He goes 4-3-2-1
He goes 1-2-3-4)
Then I push this little button and I open the door
People get all excited when I stop at their floor
I'm the elephant elevator operator
(He's the elephant elevator operator)
I'm the elephant elevator operator
Ole'!
