AnElephant Left His Heart in San Francisco


AnElephantCant stay here forever
Although he certainly will come back again
From the very first day
His soul soars away
This is the coolest place he has ever been
He has seen great cities and been lots of great places
Some one time some again and again
Historic Edinburgh
Custom-built Canberra
And wonderful wonderful Copenhagen
AnElephant loves Paris in the springtime
He once helped to make London swing
Amsterdam is real cool
Florence is a rare jewel
But San Fran just makes his heart sing
He thinks Sydney and Melbourne are bonzer
Fantastique Marseille and Geneva clearly are
He does not want to go
From San Francisco
But soon he must say au revoir
He visited the Exploratorium
He rode a cable car halfway to the stars
He saw thousands of Santas
Your fave Elephant has
Successfully escaped from Alcatraz
He ambles over that greatest of bridges
He gazes once more over the bay
The wharfs and the piers
Of the city that cheers
He leaves his heart here and goes on his way

    AnElephantCant does all kinds of stuff
    Wades in the Bay up to his pants cuff

    We know AnElephantCant is not a cream puff
    We want to see if he’s really up to snuff

    Before of San Francisco he’s had about enough
    We demand a pic of him swimming in the buff

    AnElephant really had fun
    In the city, his new number one
    His definitely well travelled
    I’m amazed he has not unravelled

    Will you again pick up and go
    Back to your San Francisco?

    AnElephantCant gave us enough pictures
    Of the palces he sees on his adventures
    If he left his heart in San Francisco,
    It my just be at the window
    Looking down on all those Santas!
    Je ne sais pas oö tu vas
    Mias tu pars pas à pas.


Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
