ME AND THE ELEPHANT (Benny Whitehead) Gene Cotton - 1975 Kenny Starr - 1977 Bobby Goldsboro - 1977 I remember the day we had nothin' to do So we went down to the City Zoo Just to kill an hour or two Out in the good sunshine But we had so much fun, we were glad that we came We fed all the animals and gave each a name An' didn't even mind when it sarted to rain We had a real good time But now that it's over and you're far away I miss you more with each passing day And all my friends sympathise and say "He'll forget in time, Yes you will, give yourself a little more time" But it's already been well over a year And just in case you're interested you might like to hear How everybody's doing down at the City Zoo Without you Well the monkeys forgot ya and the hippo forgot ya And so did the kangaroo But me and the elephant, we still remember you Me and the elephant, we'll never forget you Well I wrote to Ann Landers and Dear Abby too And sought their advice as to what I should do And they said everything that reminds me of you Would all have to go So I burned all your pictures, except two or three The one by my bed and one on my TV And the one that I always carry with me Everywhere I go Now today was so nice and since I was in town I thought I'd take the oppurtunity to go down And see how everyone is down at the City Zoo And what's new Well the rhino forgot ya an' the zebra forgot ya The polar bear and tiger too But me and the elephant, we still remember you Me and the elephant, we'll never forget you (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2002)
