The Elephant's Lullaby
copyright 2001 by Tom Knight

In the jungle, late at night
All the little elephants are tucked in tight
Except that one little elephant won't close her eyes
And so we sing the elephant's lullaby

All the animals under the stars
Listen for the sound wherever they are
And by the light of a jungle moon
Big Mama Elephant starts to croon
She sings go to sleep, little elephant
Go to sleep (Chorus)
Little elephants need to get their rest
To grow up big and strong
To make their ears so big and floppy
To make their trunks so long

All the elephants like to play
Hide and seek and tag all day
They slide down trees and swim in the creeks
And take a long bath every day of the week
But at the end of the day
It's time to hit the hay (Chorus)

So if your elephant has been up late
Is tired and hungry don't hesitate
Just give 'em some peanuts so they don't cry
And then sing the elephant's lullaby
It goes Go to sleep, little elephant
Go to sleep (Chorus)

That Was Very Good!

That was so cool. I watched it over 5 times. Was so catchy. Very VERY good.


Simply Brilliant

A great children's animation. The art, music and concept were well executed (a seldom occurrence on NG). As I watched, I thought this was definitely TV quality (which, I can't stress enough, isn't a common remark I would make regarding many clips on NG).
The music is catchy and absolutely enjoyable. The artwork, which was not only well suited for a children's song, can also be entertaining for an older audience. Coupled with the song, the tale of The Elephant's Lullaby is simply gorgeous.
I most enjoyed the Little Elephant and Mother's conversation represented by the horn and subtitles. That part clinched the top marks from me!! Thank you for submitting it; this animation is simply brilliant.


i have no idea why but i really liked this!


Very relaxing song and animation well made, ten well deserved.
I should listen more of that jazzy stuff!
