Okay kids, I'm gonna sing you a song now
'Bout a monkey and an elephant
It's all happened a long time ago
Whenever I say "a long time ago"
You all jump in there with me
Okay? Are you ready?

Well, once the world was full of monkeys a long time ago
And the elephants with the big long trunkies a long time ago
And the elephants swam in the Zazafram Sea
And the monkey swung from the zilibum tree
And life was silly as it could be a long time ago

One day the elephant was feelin' spunky a long time ago
She went to have a talk with the monkey a long time ago
And the elephant said, "Oh Lordy, me
I think I'm in love with the bumblebee
Do you think she's a little too little for me a long time ago"

Now the monkey said "You're thinkin' like a donkey a long time ago
Ah, she's so small and you're sorta chunky a long time ago
So sit right down upon my knee, I'll tell you why your love can never be
It's a physical impossibility any old time at all"

Now the elephant's tears went plunkity plunky a long time ago
Then he went home to pack his trunky a long time ago
He said "I see that bee was not for me
So he went and married a little gray flee"

And they were happy as they could be
And they had children one two three
But if you wanna know how please don't ask me
It was a long, long time ago
