I’m the largest guy on land
With two big flapping ears
And these two long tusks
That I can use as spears!
I’m the hunk with the trunk!
Not as big as I am smart!
As smart as the great apes!
We have language and make art!
And my trunk is like your hands
Good for playing, grabbing, drinking,
I use it for most anything
Scratches my head when I am thinking!
And if you’re ever near me
Look for that big guy who is grey!
With my massive size and massive brains
I hope to make your day!
For I don’t think one can ever forget
The time that one has spent
Looking at the hunk with the trunk:
That’s me — the elephant!
