Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Circle left
*I saw a peanut stand, heard a rubber band
Seen a needle wink its eye

Left allemande your corner, your partner dosado
The men star left one time
Turn your partner right, the corner allemande
Come back home and promenade
I think I've seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I've seen a front porch swing, heard a diamond ring
I've seen a polka dot railroad tie


*I heard a fireside chat, saw a baseball bat
And I just laughed 'til I thought I'd die


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands and go
Find the corner lady dosado
Swing thru, boys run right
Ferris wheel, centers pass thru
Touch 1/4, scoot back
Swing the corner girl and promenade
But I done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly

When I See An Elephant Fly
 
 

I seen a peanut stand, heard a rubber band
I seen a needle that winked its eye
But I be done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly
(What'd you say, boy?)
I said, when I see an elephant fly

I seen a front porch swing, heard a diamond ring
I seen a polka-dot railroad tie
But I be done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly

I saw a clothes horse rear up and buck
And they tell me that a man made a vegetable truck
I didn't see that, I only heard
Just to be sociable, I'll take your word

I heard a fireside chat, I saw a baseball bat
And I just laughed till I thought I'd die
But I be done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly

But I be done seen about everything
When I see an elephant fly
With the wind
When I see an elephant fly

Lyrics by Oliver Wallace and Ned Washington.
Recorded by Cliff Edwards, Jim Carmichael and the Hall Johnson Choir.
