An Elephant never forgets

"An Elephant never forgets", they say.
An Elephant never forgets.
From the moment they're born
Sixty to seventy years more,
And yet an Elephant never forgets.

I think about how an Elephant never forgets,
No, an Elephant never forgets.
Their mother's embrace,
Their favored drinking place,
Things an Elephant never forgets.

How cool! An Elephant never forgets!
No, An Elephant never forgets.
A kindess once shown,
Every rock that is thrown,
An Elephant never forgets.

An Elephant never forgets? How cruel.
An Elephant never forgets.
Every fight that they lost,
And all the family it cost,
But an Elephant never forgets.

"An Elephant never forgets", they say.
An Elephant never forgets.
But I wonder, if ever
Those mem'ries, like a fetter,
Drag an Elephant down in regrets.
