"Elephant Song" as written by and Albert Jr Hammond Julian Casablancas....
I was just sitting there
And time in hand, I will be the one
And it's so easy, darling
Please stay close and I'll be safe
He's all alone outside
And if you try too hard
Then you've gotta let go
I've got it all worked out
And in the end, I'll still be alone

In your eyes
And it is no big surprise
Sitting here by your side
Open up the

I wanted all of this
And in the end, I'll still be alone
Atop your hills, your face
Cast me down the look in your eyes
And in this big game
You'll be changing just for me
Your screaming says that I'm the one
And looking out yours

    General CommentThey are very correct I'm farily certain of, but this is the one that they played live at Brownies, back in January of 2000. The one they rerecorded for the Fan Club later on goes like this:

    I was just sitting there
    Time in hand I will be the one
    And it's so easy darling,
    Please take off and I'll be safe
    He's all alone outside
    And if you try too hard then you got to let go
    I had it all worked out
    And in the end I'll still be alone

    In your eyes
    And it is no big surprise
    Safe in my eye sight, open up the EEEeee...

    I wanted all of this
    And in the end I'll still be alone
    Atop your hills your face
    Pass me down a look in your eye
    And in this beaconing
    You'll be changing just for me
    Your screaming says that I'm
    The one in looking out yours...

    I don't know what the harmonizations say, though. I think I hear "Each day, Oohhhh...", but maybe "Each day's over...". I'm not sure, and I may be completely wrong.

    General CommentAlbert wrote the song for a school project he had in some sound engineering class or something of the sort. To my understanding, it was just he and Julian recording it. Julian did the vocals, and between the two of them the did the rest of the instruments. And I also heard they used a drum machine. I don't know about all that, but it WAS for one of Albert's assignments and he wrote it.

    General Commentthis song is cool. it's very raw, which can be very useful when listening. i do believe there are two versions to this song however. i have them both. the brownies performance is quite different from the recorded version.
