Toy Dolls', "Nelly The Elephant"
Misheard Lyrics:
Off she went.... ..Jump! Jump! Jump!
Original Lyrics:
Off she went with a trumpety trump, Trump! Trump! Trump!
Since it's THE song for jumping and poking around, the phrase Jump! fits just too perfectly to the music... but it's not what they sing! Never mind, keep up the jumping :-)
Toy Dolls', "Nelly the Elephant"
Misheard Lyrics:
The Eddie the third was calling far far away
Original Lyrics:
The head of the herd was calling far far away
