Jumbo, go away
Jumbo, go away
Jumbo leave me alone
Get your head off my bone
I wanna go home
("I'm hungry")

Jumbo lighten up
Jumbo lighten up
Jumbo give me a break
Lighten up on my snake
That's all I can take
(Robbie take me to Greek Town!)

It seems I can't explain
The way I feel about you
You just don't understand
You're from Kalamazoo...

You got to realize
Our little romance deal
Will not materialize
Into a thing that you'd call REAL...
(I think I have worms...)

Jumbo gotta go
Jumbo gotta go
Jumbo better get back
Or your eye will get black
When I give you a smack
(Boo-hoo-hoo...)

Jumbo don't you cry
Jumbo don't you cry
Jumbo this is good-bye
I ain't gonna lie
So wash up your pie

Wash up your pie
(There are three things that smell like
fish!)
Wash up your pie
(One of them is fish...)
Wash up your pie
(The other two...)
Wash up your pie
(Are growing on you...)

    General CommentFrom one of Frank's very last interviews - reproduced in the book "The Negative Dialectics Of Poodle Play":-

    BEN WATSON: "Yes, I'll dare ask it...Was it necessary to be quite so cruel to Jumbo?"
    FRANK: "What do you mean?"
    BEN WATSON: "It's the only song of yours that really upsets me, because you talk about hitting her"
    FRANK: "Well, I'm not the one who's gonna hit her..."
    BEN WATSON: "This is what I'm always having to say to people: This is a document of other people's behavior"
    FRANK: "Guy's name is Denny Whalley. It happened - ask him."
