Elephant in the Living Room

Look! There is an elephant!
It's in my living room!
Can you see the elephant?
Maybe you'll see it soon.

Look! There is an elephant!
It's in my living room!
Can you see the elephant?
Maybe you'll see it soon.

That elephant is so very big!
How can you even breathe?
It takes up so much space!
No air for you, I see.

Oh what a silly elephant!
Dancing and playing around
Knocking into everyone
No space that can be found

How can't you see the elephant?
He's bigger every day!
Won't you ever mention him?
He's so loud, hear him bray

How can't you hear that elephant?
He's so loud-I can't hear
A single word you're saying
He's braying in my ear

Will you not mention my elephant?
He's taking up all the space
I cannot seem to figure out
Why the elephant's in this place

Won't you mention the elephant
That's in my living room?
If you'd simply mention it
He might play another tune

Maybe if you mention him
He will go away
Even though I'll miss him
I sure won't miss his bray

He might go to another room
To take up all their space
Maybe they might also wonder
Why he's in that place

But you know that elephant
He's in your living room
Identical to my very own
An elephant braying his tune

Don't be afraid to mention
The elephant, 'cause he's there
This one simple elephant
Will stay until you care
