Elephants have wrinkles


My good friend and fellow-baby music enthusiast, Tamar Swade, reminded me of the elephant song I'd apparently taught her many years ago when neither of us had wrinkles and never imagined we would have. The song was written by April Kassirer and originally recorded in 1988 on the album “Dinosaur Tango”, by artists April & Susan.


The song is one of those great songs, which makes you think it has always been there. The best children's songs, I think, are those which sound 'traditional'.


Congratulations to April Kassirer for achieving that distinction.

The song is available on You Tube. Here's a great performance of it.

CHORUS: Elephants have wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles. Elephants have wrinkles, wrinkles everywhere. On their toes, (echo) No one knows, (echo) why yi yi yi yiih. CHORUS On their knees, (echo) On their toes, (echo) No one knows, (echo) why yi yi yi yiiih. CHORUS On their hips, (echo) On their knees, (echo) On their toes, (echo) No one knows, (echo) why yi yi yi yiih. CHORUS On their backs, (echo) On their hips, (echo) On their knees, (echo) On their toes, (echo) No one knows, (echo) why yi yi yi yiih. CHORUS On their ears, (echo) On their backs, (echo) On their hips, (echo) On their knees, (echo) On their toes, (echo) No one knows, (echo) why yi yi yi yiih. CHORUS
