Intro
Nobody’s talking about
Nobody’s talking about
Nobody’s talking about
Nobody’s talking about

Chorus
The Elephant in the room
The Elephant in the room
The Elephant in the room
The Elephant in the room

Hook
Nobody’s talking about it
Nobody’s talking about it
Nobody’s talking about it
Nobody’s talking about it

Verse A1
I see it there in the corner then I look away
I blame it on chronic eyesight decay

Chorus
The Elephant in the room (4 times)

Verse A2
No one is stirred but how can that be
It’s 11 feet tall and so plain to see

Chorus
The Elephant in the room (4 times)

Hook
Nobody’s talking about it (4 times)

Verse A3
From this side of the room I can still smell it’s breath
It’s quite a large beast it may crush us to death

Verse B1
I observe it more closely seems to lean on the wall
I think that I’ve never seen an elephant fall

Chorus
The Elephant in the room (4 times)

Hook
Nobody’s talking about it (4 times)

Verse B2
Now I’m getting nervous because it’s strange as can be
I sit down in my chair and it’s looking right at me

Verse C1
It doesn’t look dangerous as far as I can tell
But I’m perplexed by its presence and all the indifference
Put my hand on forehead maybe I’m just not well
I get out of my seat to offer resistance to

Chorus
The Elephant in the room (4 times)

Hook
Nobody’s talking about it (4 times)

Chorus
The Elephant in the room (4 times)

Bridge
All of the pretense and stone ironies
As they try to ignore such a colossal beast
All frozen smiles and phony blank stares
As they go about their business as if it’s not there

Chorus
The Elephant in the room (4 times)

Verse A4
I blink for a second then I blink again
Why does it stand there and how’d it get in

Verse C2 (short)
No one’s disturbed by my glower or stare
Just can’t someone to acknowledge it’s there

Chorus
The Elephant in the room (4 times)

Bridge
All of the pretense and stone ironies
As they try to ignore such a colossal beast
All frozen smiles and phony blank stares
As they go about their business as if it’s not there

Verse B3
A half hour later the whispers begin
Where did it come from and where has it been

Chorus
The Elephant in the room (4 times)

Hook
Nobody’s talking about it (9 times)
