"When I See An Elephant Fly" as written by and Ned Washington Oliver Wallace....
"Did you ever see an elephant fly?"
"Well, I seen a horsefly!"
"I seen a dragonfly!"
"I seen a housefly!"
"Yeah, I seen all that, too!"

I seen a peanut stand
And heard a rubber band
I seen a needle that winked its eye
But I'll be done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly
(What you say, boy?)
I say, when I see an elephant fly

I seen a front porch swing
And heard a diamond ring
I seen a polka-dot railroad tie
But I'll be done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly

I saw a clothes horse
He r'ar 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'll be done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly
But I'll be done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly
(Say what?)
I say, when I see an elephant fly
