I have a checkered elephant

That goes to bed with me

I hadnít time to make his eyes

And so he cannot see

Although I hate to tell it

My darling never hears

I was in such a hurry

That I forgot his ears

His tusks were funny bits of cloth

Their use I couldnít see

So I sewed right past the place

Where they were sposíd to be

Some folks think that heís a dog

But heís got a trunk you know

Even that drags on the floor

Unless he stands just so
