Effervescing Elephant

Syd Barrett

 GG7
An effervescing elephant with tiny eyes and great big trunk
 CC7
once whispered to the tiny ear, the ear of one in fear, you hear
 G
that by next June he'd die, Oh yeah!
 D
And the tiger would roam, the little one said,
 D7
"Oh my goodness -- I must stay at home!
 GG7
And every time I hear a growl, I'll know the tiger's on the prowl,
 CC7
And I'll be really safe, you know, the elephant, he told me so."
 G
 Everyone was nervous, Oh yeah!
 DD7
And the message was spread to zebra, mongoose and the dirty hippopotamus
 GG7
who wallowed in the mud and chewed his spicy hippo-plankton food
 C
and tended to ignore the word,
 C7G
referring to a survey I heard of stupid water bison
 D
Oh yeah!  And all the jungle took fright,
 D7
and ran around for all the day and the night,
 G
But all in vain because, you see, the tiger came and said,
 G7C
"Who me?  You know I wouldn't hurt not one of you --
 CG
much prefer something to chew, and you're all too scant."
 CDG
Oh yeah!  He ate the elephant.
