EFFERVESCING ELEPHANT -- Syd Barrett

   G                          G7
An effervescing elephant with tiny eyes and great big trunk

     C                              C7
once whispered to the tiny ear, the ear of one in fear, you hear

     G
that by next June he'd die, Oh yeah!

                    D
And the tiger would roam, the little one said,

       D7
"Oh my goodness -- I must stay at home!

    G                               G7
And every time I hear a growl, I'll know the tiger's on the prowl,

    C                                   C7
And I'll be really safe, you know, the elephant, he told me so."

G
Everyone was nervous, Oh yeah!
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/syd_barrett/effervescing_elephant_crd.html ]
                    D                                  D7
And the message was spread to zebra, mongoose and the dirty hippopotamus

    G                                  G7
who wallowed in the mud and chewed his spicy hippo-plankton food

    C
and tended to ignore the word,

   C7                            G
referring to a survey I heard of stupid water bison

                                  D
Oh yeah!  And all the jungle took fright,

                           D7
and ran around for all the day and the night,

           G
But all in vain because, you see, the tiger came and said,

     G7              C
"Who me?  You know I wouldn't hurt not one of you --

  C                                  G
I much prefer something to chew, and you're all too scant."

   C                 D   G
Oh yeah!  He ate the elephant.
