   A
An Effervescing Elephant with tiny eyes and great big trunk 
     D
once whispered to the tiny ear the ear of one inferior 
     A                       
that by next June he'd die, oh yeah! 
                        E7
because the tiger would roam. 

The little one said: "Oh my goodness I must stay at home! 
    A
and every time I hear a growl I'll know the tiger's on the prowl 
    D
and I'll be really safe, you know the elephant he told me so." 
A
Everyone was nervy, oh yeah! 
                    E7
and the message was spread 

to zebra, mongoose, and the dirty hippopotamus 
    A
who wallowed in the mud and chewed his spicy hippo-plankton food 
    D
and tended to ignore the word preferring to survey a herd 
   A                      E7
of stupid water bison, oh yeah!  And all the jungle took fright, 

and ran around for all the day and the night 
                 A
but all in vain, because, you see, the tiger came and said: "Who me?! 
            D
You know, I wouldn't hurt not one of you. I'd much prefer something to chew 
    A                         E7
and you're all too scant." oh yeah! 
              A
He ate the Elephant

isn't it 1 step down? as in g c and d instead of a d and e. but very good otherwise.
