"Elephant Parade" Lyrics [edit]
by Relient K | from the album Air For Free
 

(Hip-hip hooray for the elephants on parade)
(Hip hip hooray for the elephants on parade)

Take the gist of it and twist it
'Til it makes you smile
And don't be scared if there's a snare
Sometimes it takes a while
There's much to learn from every turn inside a labyrinth
Don't you try to think about it
No way to talk about it

And I will ever change and never cease to be amazed
It bubbles up and overflows and then it goes away
I want to hold and nurture every second of this life
That has been given to me
Even the limits in me

Jackrabbit, snake pit runnin' oh
My my, been a long time comin' home
Jackrabbit dying deep down in his soul

Dang-nab-it, you hate me, but hey now
Hip-hip hooray with your baritones on your hip
Hip hooray for the elephants on parade

You're preaching to the chorus
Line alright for this whole time
And I'm fine if I can
Tell a lie about the minor crimes
I won't try to justify the reason why
I think that I'll never die is so preposterous

It's like a bag of circus peanuts in a sewage drain
Or airin' out your dirty laundry on a weather vane
Hip-hip hooray for the elephants on parade
They're gonna trample themselves
They're gonna trample themselves

Jackrabbit, snake pit runnin' oh
My my, been a long time comin' home
Jackrabbit dying deep down in his soul

Dang-nab-it, you hate me, but hey now
Hip-hip hooray with your baritones on your hip
Hip hooray for the elephants on parade

I got the feeling that I wanna be alone with you
And I got the feeling that you
Might want to be alone with me too
Take a finger and snap, just like that
And I had to say hey baby let's go
And make it home for our show
Simple defragmentation gets us to the point of that
But no relaxing 'til they give us all our memory back
Touché [?]
Take it all out of order anyway
They can always make you pay up

And I will ever change and never cease to be amazed
It bubbles up and overflows and then it goes away
I want to hold and nurture every second of this life
That has been given to me
Even the limits in me
Like a bag of circus peanuts in a sewage drain
Or airin' out your dirty laundry on a weather vane

Hip-hip hooray for the elephants on parade
Hip hooray for the elephants on parade

Take the gist of it and twist it 'til it makes you smile
And don't be scared if there's a snare
Sometimes it takes a while
There's much to learn from every turn inside a labyrinth
Don't you try to think about it
Ain't no way to talk about it
And I will ever change and never cease to be amazed
It bubbles up and overflows and then it goes away
I want to hold and nurture every second of this life
That has been given to me, even the limits in me

Jackrabbits, snake pit runnin' oh
My my been a long time coming
Jackrabbits, snake pit running
Hip-hip Hooray for the elephants on parade
