about

Inspired by a bunch of flowers we found in a dumpster and distributed to our friends dining room tables, unless the house was locked.

lyrics

There's an elephant on my couch, I guess he's in my room,
there is dirt on the floor, could you grab the broom,
we'll sweep it under the rug, then you can vacuum,
while I find you a band-aid for your gaping wound,

Chorus
If you don't want the intruder to put flowers on your table,
you'd better lock your door,
we live like kings off the backs of the empire's dining room fable of more and more

There's a map on my wall it says this country's huge,
there's a history book, I have not perused,
It probably doesn't say how empires are doomed,
how they all fade fast into the blue x2
how they all wilt faster than they bloomed,

Chorus

Mr. Elephant what's your deal, why don't you go away,
go balance on a ball, or eat some hay.
There comes a time in our live's we've gotta put up a peaceful fight
don't count on your chicken's not hatching before they might
