Technicolor Pachyderms

Here is a video that most 20-somethings will remember.  It is the creepy scene from Disney’s Dumbo.  I’m 27 and this clip is still a little bit creepy.

Look out! Look out!
Pink elephants on parade
Here they come!
Hippety hoppety
They’re here and there
Pink elephants ev’rywhere
Look out! Look out!
They’re walking around the bed
On their head
Clippety cloppety
Arrayed in braid
Pink elephants on parade
What’ll I do? What’ll I do?
What an unusual view!
I could stand the sight of worms
And look at microscopic germs
But technicolor pachyderms
Is really much for me
I am not the type to faint
When things are odd or things
are quaint
But seeing things you know that ain’t
Can certainly give you an awful fright!
What a sight!
Chase ’em away!
Chase ’em away!
I’m afraid need your aid
Pink elephants on parade!
Pink elephants!
Pink elephants!


  1. I really like this song; it’s weird but has it’s beauty too and even though Dumbo is supposed to be for kids it had a lot of dark elements with no b.s. so it was perfect.
