Words by F. H. Evans. Music by J. Albert Snow.

O have you seen the elephant? is all the people's cry;
The great And mighty elephant, who stands so broad and high!
He daily eats a ton of hay, and drinks upon the sly
A tub of circus lemonade, and several pints of rye.

O have you seen the elephant? from England late he came;
He is the king of elephants, and Jumbo is his name.

Old Jumbo likes a social glass, but he is never drunk;
Tho' people say he always keeps a bottle in his trunk;
But then there's always snakes around, and Jumbo thinks it right
To keep some rye on hand to cure an accidental bite.-Chorus.

When people went to see him first, they wondered at his size;
And then he looked so funny, too, and winked his knowing eyes;
But they were very much surprised when soon the monster ran
And left the ring between the acts to go and see a man.-Chorus.
