The Lyrics

i noticed his big body flyin'
a pachyderm's hard to ignore
i thought that my eyes must be lyin'
it seemed an impossible chore
aloft, like he's light as a feather
improbably, zoomed like a jet
dumbo's up, like a bird..or a soarin' plane
such a thing's weird as it gets

dumbo's up...he's flyin' like mad
he's streakin' like crazy, crazy
dumbo's up...he's flyin' like mad
he's streakin' like crazy

most elephants live in the jungle
an not in a stratosphere zone
and just how it works, i've no answer
i just know i've seen that he's flown
we've all heard of vixen and prancer
but reindeer ain't this critter's kin
yet he acts like a plane...ain't no way to explain
he loops and he veers and he spins

dumbo's up...he's flyin' like mad
he's streakin' like crazy, crazy
dumbo's up...he's flyin' like mad
he's streakin' like crazy

its something to see him in motion
the people below feel alarm
you'll hear 'em cry out, "land o' goshen ! "
and pray that he don't come to harm
its not just a trick or illusion
and not just a psychotic dream
a beast like him sure is amusin'
however unlikely it seems

dumbo's up...he's flyin' like mad
he's streakin' like crazy, crazy
dumbo's up...he's flyin' like mad
he's streakin' like crazy

Big old gray airliner
Runs on peanuts and tons of hay
Big old gray airliner
Monstrous ears flappin' all the way

'cause he's a poster
He's a poemster
A cosummate jokester
His plays on music are real fun

Another thing the people below him might be feeling beside alarm: fear, that he has a little pigeon in him :-) 555
