The Lyrics

I thought of this parody because "elephant's trunk" fits so well and I thought it would be funny - but it turned into a more serious song about life from an elephant's point of view, mainly the threat from humans.
I stand tall
And people forget
The herds die as the bullets fly
And people forget
Forget we're dying
The cash flows
And people forget
The threat grows as you should know
But people forget
Forget we're dying

I’ve got an elephant’s trunk
Elephant’s trunk - It's a big ’n
It’s an elephant’s trunk
it’s an elephant’s trunk - It's a big ’n
An elephant’s trunk
Elephant’s trunk - It's a big ’n
Elephant’s trunk
It’s an elephant’s trunk
It’s an elephant’s trunk - It's a big ’n
It's a big ’n, It's a big ’n, It's a big ’n

Come and catch the poachers
Out to kill
Won’t you come and catch the poachers
Out to kill

The trees fall
People forget
The greedy hand, takes our land
People forget
Forget we're dying
The guns fire
People forget
Our tusks sell, life is hell
People forget
Forget we're dying

I’ve got an elephant’s trunk
An elephant’s trunk - It's a big ’n
It’s just an elephant’s trunk
Elephant’s trunk - It's a big ’n
An elephant’s trunk
Elephant’s trunk - It's a big ’n
Elephant’s trunk
It’s an elephant’s trunk - It's a big ’n
It's a big ’n, It's a big ’n, It's a big ’n

Come and catch the poachers
Out to
Come and catch the poachers
Out to
Come and catch the poachers
Out to
Come and catch the poachers
Out to kill
Arm yourself to kill
