I once heard of an elephant
Who travelled from the Orient
"I know it all!" she sadly cried
"There must be something I've not tried!"
She packed her trunks and off she went
To learn, as noble beasts are meant
So like the one who learned it all
Remember, remember
Like the one who learned it all -- Remember!

First she met a unicorn
Who taught her how to blow a horn
Just like a herald on parade
And of the two new friends who played
The King and Queen were quite impressed
The elephant could play the best
So like the one who learned it all
Remember, remember
Like the one who learned it all -- Remember

So then our girl the elephant
Went off to see a pelican
She flapped her ears and learned to fly
And sang the chicks a lullaby
And when she came to take a rest
She learned to balance in a nest
So like the one who learned it all
Remember, remember
Like the one who learned it all -- Remember

But soon our girl was off again
And living in a dragon's den
The dragon taught her what to count
And how to find the right amount
And just for fun she learned the game
Of how to set a town aflame
So like the one who learned it all
Remember, remember
Like the one who learned it all -- Remember

When last we met she was at sea
She waved her trunk and called to me:
"I've joined up with a pirate crew!
I'll see the world, and when I'm through,"
She cried, "I've so much left to do --
Perhaps I'll come and learn from you!"
So like the one who learned it all
Remember, remember
Like the one who learned it all -- Remember!

So like the one who learned it all
Remember, remember
Like the one who learned it all -- Remember
