Stackridge - Syracuse The Elephant lyrics

Syracuse the elephant wanders around,
Never bothers anyone, lies on the ground,
Eats his trees and giant leaves, keeps to himself
Remembers herbal niceties he found on the veldt.

Oh, leave me alone, I want to go home,
Oh, leave me alone, I want to go home,
Don't take my herbs away.

Born and bred in Bristol Zoo, brought up on swedes,
His keeper was a specialist, brought down from Leeds,
He fed him well and curled his tail, making a show
But Syracuse the elephant still wanted to go.

Oh, leave me alone, I want to go home,
Oh, leave me alone, I want to go home,
Don't take my herbs away.

Syracuse the elephant, remember his name,
Then you won't forget about his fortune and fame,
They shipped him to America, to star and reign,
And now he lives in Hollywood with Tarzan and Jane!

Oh, leave me alone, I want to go home,
Oh, leave me alone, I want to go home,
Don't take my herbs away.
