He broke an elephant's back; He stopped a Mexican railway train And kicked it off the track.
He stopped a steamboat with his head And kicked it out of sight;
He kicked a skating-rink in two At nine o'clock at night.

He poked one hindleg down his throat And kicked himself to death.
My own version, remembered from the singing of my father, Mr. Harold 0. Brewster. With music.
