The Jazz Butcher Lyrics Water

Lyrics

Water
If you're hungry, eat your dinner
If you're thirsty, have a drink
If you're lonesome, do a jigsaw
If you're angry, stop and think
But if you're an elephant
And there are those of us who are elephants
This is what you do

You say
Has the elephant had any water
Has the elephant had any water
Life is short and it's always getting shorter
So think about the elephant and buy him a drink
Has the elephant had any water
Has the elephant had any water
Life is short and it's always getting shorter
So talk to the elephant and see what he thinks
He thinks water (water) water (water) water (water) water (water)
Water (water) water (water) w-w-w-w-wwww...

Has the elephant had any water
Has that elephant had any water
Life is short and it's always getting shorter
So think about the elephant and give him a drink
Has the elephant had any water
Has the elephant got any shorter
Don't care if you look like Dracula's daughter
Talk to the elephant and see what he thinks
Think about the elephant and give him a drink
Talk to the elephant
Because he thinks about...drink
