Mumbo Jumbo


Mumbo Jumbo is his name
He loves playing lots of games
And he really is my friend
So on him I can depend.

He's got two great big ears
And a trunk that really curves
So he can reach the trees
With such grace and ease.

But he doesn't go to school
As he's broken all the rules
He knocked down their big gates
And scared off all my mates.

He shocked my teacher white
Oh he gave her such a fright
When he sat down in a chair
She told the class "Beware!"

But I like Mumbo Jumbo
And he really doesn't grumble
As he's happy to be here
And I'll always want him near.

My elephant

Mumbo Jumbo is his name

But he doesn't go to school
As he's broken all the rules
He knocked down their big gates
And scared off all my mates.

He shocked my teacher white
Oh he gave her such a fright
When he sat down in a chair
She told the class "Beware!"

But I like Mumbo Jumbo
And he really doesn't grumble
As he's happy to be here
And I'll always want him near.
