Elephant on the moon

Walking on the moon

moonwalking like Mike

trying to find the light

Have you seen it?

It’s usually so bright

The elephant stopped

Then kept going

Looking for the light

it was there before

Where’d it go?

Dust came up

Step, dust, step, dust

The elephant looked, the rabbit was there

The rabbit didn’t say anything

Step, dust, step, dust

Where was the fisherman?

The one from dreamworks

maybe he’d know,

how this dream works

The elephant stopped

No step, no dust

Remembered the fence

The old gate, gathering rust

All it took was a heave and a thrust

Now out in the wild

Now time to go

Now what?

Now on the moon

Step, dust, step, dust

On the moon,

the elephant grinned

Looked around, there it was

Back at the ground

There the whole time

The elephant remembered

On a floating rock,

through empty space

The place that can never be filled

The elephant remembered

In empty space but feeling full

The elephant remembered

There it was

There the whole time

All so bright

An elephant never forgets,

even on the moon.
