Bobby Bare – Monkey And The Elephant lyrics
(Okay kids, I'm gonna sing you a song now bout a monkey and an elephant.
It's all happened a long time ago. Whenever I say "a long time ago" you all jump in there with me. Okay? Are you ready?)

Well once the world was full of monkeys a long time ago
And the elephants with the big long trunkies a long time ago
And the elephants swam in the Zazafram Sea
And the monkey swung from the zilibum tree
And life was silly as it could be a long time ago

One day the elephant was feelin' spunky a long time ago
She went to have a talk with the monkey a long time ago
And the elephant said oh Lordy me I think I'm in love with the bumblebee
Do you think she's a little too little for me a long time ago

Now the monkey said you're thinkin' like a donkey a long time ago
Ah she's so small and you're sorta chunky a long time ago
So sit right down upon my knee I'll tell you why your love can never be
It's a physical imposibility any old time at all

Now the elephant's tears went plunkity plunky a long time ago
Then he went home to pack his trunky a long time ago
He said I see that bee was not for me so he went and married a little gray flee
And they were happy as they could be and they had children one two three
But if you wanna know how please don't ask me it was a long long time ago
