Lyrics

I seen a peanut stand, heard a rubber band
I seen a needle that winked its eye
But I be done seen 'bout ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly

(What d'you say, boy?)
I said when I see an elephant fly
I seen a front porch swing, heard a diamond ring
I seen a polka-dot railroad tie
But I be done seen 'bout ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly

(I saw a clothes horse, he r'ar up and buck)
(And they tell me that a man made a vegetable truck)
(I didn't see that, I only heard)
(But just to be sociable, I'll take your word)

(I heard a fireside chat, I saw a baseball bat)
(And I just laughed till I thought I'd die)
But I be done seen 'bout ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly

Well I be done seen 'bout ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly
(With the wind)

When I see an elephant fly

Reprise Version

I seen a peanut stand, heard a rubber band
I seen a needle that winked its eye
But I be done seen 'bout ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly

When I see
When I see

When I see an elephant fly

When I see an elephant fly

When I see an elephant fly

Trivia

  • Much of the lip-syncing of the crows is off during this number, with the crows switching rapidly between different singers.
  • Part of the song can be heard at the end of Disney's 1995 live-action movie, Operation Dumbo Drop.
