Em              C          B7
I saw seventeen pink sugar elephants
Em              C        B7
Sitting under a chestnut tree
Em                  C          B7
I said good morning pink sugar elephants
Em       C        Am       Em   
But they wouldn't speak to me

Am           Em            Am              Em
Each had two eyes but they couldn't see me there
Am            Em            Am           Em
Each had four legs but they couldn't go anywhere
C
And so we just sat
D                 Dsus4
That early autumn morning
G           D         Am    Em       
Sun not yet risen and magic everywhere

Am    Em   Am   Em 
Lalalala   Lalalala
C     B7     Em
Laaaaaaaa lalala

Em                 C           B7
I walked up to one pink sugar elephant
Em                    C        B7
Asked why wouldn't he speak to me
Em                        C          B7
But he was a factory-made pink sugar elephant
Em       C            Am           Em
Given to children for treats after tea

Am         Em          Am              Em
He had two eyes but he couldn't see me there
Am          Em          Am            Em
He had four legs but he couldn't go anywhere
C
And so we just sat
D                 Dsus4
That early autumn morning
G           D         Am         Em
Sun not yet risen and magic everywhere

Am    Em   Am   Em 
Lalalala   Lalalala
C     B7     Em
Laaaaaaaa lalala
