I'd Like To Have An Elephant For Christmas
Written by: Hank Thompson
Date: 1964

"I'd Like to Have an Elephant for Christmas" is a Christmas song written by Hank Thompson.

Lyrics

I'd like to have elephant for Christmas
But how you gonna fit him in your sleigh?
I don't believe he'd be a lot of trouble
If you feed him lots of peanuts on the way

Lots of folks would rather have a puppy
And I'll bet that that would be a lot of fun
But I'd like to have elephant for Christmas
Maybe, Santa, you can get me one

I'd like to have elephant for Christmas
But how you gonna get him 'neath the tree?
Just suppose that he got stuck up in our chimney
Then everyone would blame it all on me

Lots of folks crazy 'bout the monkeys
They like to watch them play out at the zoo
But I'd like to have elephant for Christmas
Santa, won't you see what you can do?

(Instrumental break)

I'd like to have elephant for Christmas
I promise I'll be good all through the year
I know it won't be easy but it sure would please me
If on Christmas day my elephant is here

I guess that I should ask for a pony
Or a kitten in my stocking Christmas day
I'd like to have elephant for Christmas
Maybe, Santa, you can find a way

I'd like to have elephant for Christmas
Maybe, Santa, you can find a way
