Written and sung by Sam Devere.

Old Jumbo was an elephi-ant,
As big as all creation,
He packed his trunk, shook Johnny Bull,
And sailed for the Yankee nation.
With a tail as long as a telegraph pole,
His legs were just tremendous,
He weighed three hundred and seventeen tons
He was something quite stupendous.

Oh. he shook the ground when he walked around,
Thurabo, Slumbo, Yumbo;
The biggest animile on earth
Is Buruum's elephant Jumbo.

When he joined old Barnum's circus show,
He was called the great Colossus;
They stowed the baggage all away
In the end of his proboscis;
The ladies fed him on on sugar plums,
And said he was just too beautiful,
The little children sat on warts
That stuck out on his cuticle.-Chorus.

Three hundred bales of hay a day
He chews up for his dinner,
And a barrel of water at every gulp-
If he don't then I'm a sinner.
He swallows peanuts by the ton,
I tell you he's a snorter;
Eats 'lasses cake and ginger bread,
C1ean gone on sogers water. - Chorus.

When he humps his tail and makes a growl,
it's like a clap of thunder;
The country people stop and stare,
And gaze around in wonder.
He paralyzed the lion's spine,
And made his blood run chilly;
He blowed his breath on the monkey's cage,
And made them all look silly.-Chorus.
