about

An over-the-top pop calypso song based on bad animal puns. Got a bit carried away with this one...

lyrics

There's an elephant in the room, but I don't wanna talk about it
A general atmosphere of doom, and both of us could do without it
An atmosphere of fear and dread, because this great big thing's just hanging over our head
It's gonna get on top of us soon, but I don't wanna talk about it

I've got this monkey on my back. I can't seem to get rid of it
I thought it might cut me some slack, but oh no, not a bit of it
I thought it might just go away, if I kept on ignoring it and didn't play its games
But it's still there. I can't seem to get rid of it.

I know it's time to take this bull by the horns
I know we need to talk it through
I don't know, maybe the cat's just got my tongue
I'm such a chicken when it comes to you

We've got this tiger by the tail. No way we can let go of it
Or it'll get us without fail. Then everyone will know of it
It's running wild. What can we do?
It's time to get all these animals back in the zoo
There's an elephant in the room, but I don't want to talk about it.
