A An Effervescing Elephant with tiny eyes and great big trunk D once whispered to the tiny ear the ear of one inferior A that by next June he'd die, oh yeah! E7 because the tiger would roam. The little one said: "Oh my goodness I must stay at home! A and every time I hear a growl I'll know the tiger's on the prowl D and I'll be really safe, you know the elephant he told me so." A Everyone was nervy, oh yeah! E7 and the message was spread to zebra, mongoose, and the dirty hippopotamus A who wallowed in the mud and chewed his spicy hippo-plankton food D and tended to ignore the word preferring to survey a herd A E7 of stupid water bison, oh yeah! And all the jungle took fright, and ran around for all the day and the night A but all in vain, because, you see, the tiger came and said: "Who me?! D You know, I wouldn't hurt not one of you. I'd much prefer something to chew A E7 and you're all too scant." oh yeah! A He ate the Elephant --------------------------------------------------------------- Tabbed by: Shaun Molthop
