"When I See an Elephant Fly" is a song in Dumbo. The song was sung by The Crows. It was included in Disney Sing Along Songs: You Can Fly! and Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All Time Favorites: The Early Years.

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

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

Ho ho! When I think about it
Ho ho! I have to laugh!
Ho ho! Just to think about it
Bends me right in half!

I saw a peanut stand, heard a rubber band
I saw a needle that winked its eye
But I think I will have seen everything
When I see an elephant fly

I saw a front porch swing, heard a diamond ring
I saw a polka-dot railroad tie
But I think I will have seen ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly

I saw a clothes horse r'ar up and buck
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 their word

I saw a lantern slide, saw an old cow hide
And I just laughed till I thought I'd die
But I think I will have seen ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly

I saw a garden walk, a banana stalk
I saw a pig with an awful sty
But I think I will have seen ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly

I saw the sugar bowl, saw the jelly roll
I saw a picket fence, that's no lie
But I think I will have seen ev'rything
When I see an elephant fly

I even heard a chocolate drop
I went into a store, saw a bicycle shop
You can't deny the things that you see
But I know there's certain things that just can't be!

The other day by chance, saw an old Barn dance
So I'm a gullible sort of guy
But I think I will have seen ev'rything
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.
