If you should meet an elephant
on a summer’s day
What would you do?
What would you say?
I’d say, “Good morning, Elephant,
How do you do?
I’m glad to meet you, Elephant,
I’d like to dance with you.”

A double circle is formed with partners facing each other. The inner circle sings the first verse, wagging their "trunks" (hands clasped, arms extended) in time to the music. The outer circle replies, bowing on "Good Morning", shaking hands with the "trunk" on "How do you do?" then joining right hands, the partners skip around each other, everyone singing for the last line. Switch the circles and sing it again!
