Elephant Parade

This song is by Relient K and appears on the album Air for Free (2016).

(Hip-hip hooray for the elephants on parade)

(Hip hip hooray for the elephants on parade)

Take the gist of it and twist it till it makes you smile
And don't be scared if there's a snare, sometimes it takes a while
There's much to learn from every turn inside a labyrinth
Don't you try to think about it
No way to talk about it

And I will ever change and never cease to be amazed
It bubbles up and overflows and then it goes away
I want to hold and nurture every second of this life that has been given to me
Even the limits in me

Jackrabbit, snake pit running oh
My my, been a long time coming home
Jackrabbit dying deep down in his soul
Dag-nab-it, you hate me, but hey now
Hip-hip hooray with your baritones on your hip
Hip hooray for the elephants on parade

You're preaching to the chorus line alright for this whole time
And I'm fine if I can tell a lie about the minor crimes
I won't try to justify the reason why
I think that I'll never die is so preposterous

It's like a bag of circus peanuts in a sewage drain
Or airing out your dirty laundry on a weather vane
Hip-hip hooray for the elephants on parade
They're gonna trample themselves
They're gonna trample themselves

Jackrabbit, snake pit running oh
My my, been a long time coming home
Jackrabbit dying deep down in his soul
Dag-nab-it, you hate me, but hey now
Hip-hip hooray with your baritones on your hip
Hip hooray for the elephants on parade

I got the feeling that I wanna be alone with you
And I got the feeling that you might want to be alone with me, too
Take a finger and snap, just like that
And I had to say hey baby let's go
And make it home for our show
Simple defragmentation gets us to the point of that
But no relaxing till they give us all our memory back
Touché, but they had the wherewithal to take it all out of order anyway
They can always make you pay up
And I will ever change and never cease to be amazed
It bubbles up and overflows and then it goes away
I want to hold and nurture every second of this life that has been given to me
Even the limits in me
Like a bag of circus peanuts in a sewage drain
Or airing out your dirty laundry on a weather vane
Hip-hip hooray for the elephants on parade
Hip hooray for the elephants on parade

Take the gist of it and twist it till it makes you smile
And don't be scared if there's a snare, sometimes it takes a while
There's much to learn from every turn inside a labyrinth
Don't you try to think about it
Ain't no way to talk about it
And I will ever change and never cease to be amazed
It bubbles up and overflows and then it goes away
I want to hold and nurture every second of this life that has been given to me
Even the limits in me

Jackrabbits, snake pit runnin' oh
My my been a long time coming
Jackrabbits, snake pit running
Hip-hip Hooray for the elephants on parade
