Elephant's Memory – Mongoose lyrics
In the village of the Leboga
Lies a body cold and dead
For the venom of the cobra
Has with the body wed

I can hear a little girl
As she cries to all around
For the snake has killed my father
Tell me where can help be found

Mongoose, mongoose
Mongoose, mongoose

Then all the people sound the drums
Call the mongoose from his lair
Through the jungle, he flies alone
To Leboga on a dare

In the dark, the cobra waits
And his eyes glow red
Like a flash comes the mongoose
For the battle head to head

Mongoose, mongoose
Mongoose, mongoose

Said the mongoose to the cobra
See the panther in that tree
As the cobra turned it's head
Mongoose caught it in his teeth

Then the people started singing
For the snake that killed them all
Cobra eggs now are hatching
Baby cobras back for more

Mongoose, mongoose
Mongoose, mongoose
Mongoose, mongoose
Mongoose, mongoose...
