Never let an elephant

Never let an elephant in your house Get a rabbit or a lemur or a mouse If you’re going to buy a pet And you haven’t got one yet Never, let an elephant in your house Never let an Elephant in your lounge He will beg and he will pester, he will scrounge With his oversized proboscis He's more trouble than rhinoceros Never, let an Elephant in your lounge Never let an elephant in your bed Make him sleep out, maybe in the garden shed If you let him in your pit He will fidget, quite a bit Never, let an Elephant in your bed © John W Fenn 03-01-2009
