"Anne Elephant" as written by John Robert Cardwell, Philip Abram Dickey and William Lincoln Knauer....
someone has switched it out of all this
so we put into a bottle
a small parchment tied with band

til we noticed, quite conclusively,
a raw and breathing pattern
being scribbled out by hands in the middle of the sand

so i dig, and i dug,
until i couldn't dug no more
i have reached God's island shore, thank God it's home
and then pound this little mound
without needin' no kettle drum
if I'm your prisoner of intolerant, that is alright.

i'm going to get you
i'm going to get you, anne
only alone
you don't know what it's like
or maybe you do
maybe you do

    General CommentThanks a lot for working on these lyrics, I think you are the closest attempt I have seen.

    I think instead of pound these little mounds I think he might say
    And I vow to get along with out needin' no/a ~~~~~
