The Extraordinary Elephant
The extraordinary elephant climbed on the trapeze
And hung there by his knees
In a manner sure to please,
While a wondering crowd gathered about.
The monkey, when he heard their admiring shout,
Upon a high trapeze,
With the very greatest ease,
Hanging by his tail, whirled around and in and out.
But in vain is all his skill, for the wise crowd only sees
The extraordinary elephant hanging hy his knees.
