That's Not My Elephant That You See
That's not my elephant that you see.
My elephant is skinny and likes to watch TV
He also has a thin spaghetti trunk.
And likes to kneel and pray like a Monk.
My elephant likes to snort the bill of rights.
While riding 2nd graders day and night.
When my elephant talks on the phone,
He gets Ella Fitzgerald to sing him a song.
Yes my elephant is very intelligent with me.
That's why I say, "That's not my elephant that you see!"
Written for Matt Caliri's "Thant's not my elephant!" contest
