My trunk is very long
My body is very strong
My feet go stomp, stomp, stomp!
When I drink I squirt people.
You cannot carry me,
But I can carry you,
I live in the jungle
And the African bush too.
I like to eat peanuts, chew, chew, chew!
I make a funny noise from my trunk, brrrr!
My skin is tough and grey
I'm the oldest animal,
So listen to what I say!
When I'm hot I like a muddy bath
My favourite back scratcher is a tree.
I'm an elephant, can't you see!
