I saw a peanut stand
Heard a rubber band
I saw a needle
That winked it's eye
But I think I will have
Seen everything
When I see
An elephant fly

I saw a front porch swing
Heard a diamond ring
I saw a polka-dot railroad tie
But I think
I will have seen everything
When I see an elephant fly

I saw a clothed horse
Rear up and buck
And they tell me that a man
Made a vegetable truck
I didn't see that
I only heard
But just to be sociable
I'll take your word

I heard a fireside chat
I saw a baseball bat
And I just laughed
Till I thought I'd die
But I'd be done seen
About everything
When I see an elephant fly

I even heard
A jockle and drop
I went into a store and saw a bicycle shop

You can't deny
The things that you see
But I know there are certain that just can't be

I heard a far side chat
Heard a baseball bat
I bat until I thought I'd die

But I think
I will have seen everything
When I see an elephant fly

When I see an elephant fly
