Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The circus animal cannot hear the trainer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Think they have worms.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Jumbo is at hand.
The Second Jumbo! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Loxodonta africana
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with elephant body and the head of a woman,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Canarsie to be born?

Good Mornin' Little Jumbo
the Jumbo Lang version

Good mornin' little Jumbo
Can I go home with you
Tell your mama and your daddy
That I'm a little sissy jumbo too
Jumbo I love ya', I just can't help myself
Your so good lookin' pretty Jumbo
I don't need nobody else
Good mornin' little Jumbo
Can I go home with you
phewooo, ooo, ooowee wee wee

I'm gonna leave you Jumbo
About the break of the day
On account of the way you treat me
I've got to stay away
Good mornin' little Jumbo
Can I go home with you
Tell you mama and your daddy
I'm a little sissy jumbo too
Come on home pretty baby
Oh ya know I can't help myself
phewooo, ooo, ooowee wee wee wee hee hee

I' gonna buy me an airplane
And fly all over your town
And tell everybody, Jumbo
Lord knows you've been puttin' me down
I can't stand it Jumbo
Just can't stand it Jumbo
Just can't help myself
Your so young and pretty
But your sittin' on somebody else
Good mornin' little Jumbo
Can I go home with you
phewooo, ooo, ooowee wee wee hee hee
Oh, Jumbo what you do to me
Oh, I can't help myself

Jumbo, all around,
Sometimes up, sometimes down,
But always around.
Jumbo, are you coming to my town
Or am I coming to yours?
We're on different buses, Jumbo
But we're both using petrol.
Bombs.

Man got his Jumbo to take his seed he got the power oh she got the need
She spends her life through pleasing up her man she feeds him pork rinds or anything she can
She cries alone at night too often he smokes and drinks and don't come home at all
Only Jumbos bleed, only Jumbos bleed, only Jumbos bleed

"Elevate Me Jumbo"
by Muddy Jumbo


Elevate me jumbo, jumbo five or six floors all down
Elevate me jumbo, jumbo five or six floors all down
Ah you know everybody tell me, you must be the elevatin' jumbo in town

Well you know when you start to elevate me
You almost scared me to death
You elevate me so fast
I've to stop and catch my breath
Elevate me jumbo, jumbo five or six floors all down
Ah you know everybody tells me, you 'bout the elevatin' jumbo in town

Well you know I went to your apartment last night
You had your elevator runnin' slow
You know I gave you a buzz
I went to take you up on the fourteenth floor
Elevate me jumbo, jumbo five or six floors on down
Well you know everybody tells me, you must be the elevatin' jumbo in town

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be jumbos, just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I'll drink all the time
'Cause we're jumbos, and that is a fact
Yes we're jumbos, and that is that

Though nothing, will keep us together
We could steal time,
just for one day
We can be jumbos, for ever and ever
What d'you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like jumbos, like jumbos can swim
Though nothing,
nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh we can be jumbos,
just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be jumbos, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I can remember cos I never forget
Standing, by the wall by the wall
And the guns shot above our heads
over our heads
And we kissed,
as though nothing could fall
nothing could fall
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be jumbos,
just for one day

We can be jumbos
We can be jumbos
We can be jumbos

Just for one day
We can be jumbos
We're nothing, and nothing will help us
Maybe we're lying,
then you better not stay
But we could be safer,
just for one day

Jumboh-oh-oh-ohhs, jumboh-oh-oh-ohhs,
just for one day

Hey man, oh leave me alone you know
Hey man, oh Henry, get off the phone, I gotta
Hey man, I gotta straighten my face
This Jumbo thighed chick
Just put my spine out of place....

Now people have been saying that some of this jumbo is poison. It's not poison, it's just bad jumbo. It's manufactured poorly.

Say My Name

Declan: Yeah, so you say. Just wondering why we’re so lucky. Why cut us in?
Walter: Mike is retiring from our crew. So his share of the partnership is available, if you can handle his end: distribution. And if you give him $5 million of the $15 million that you brought today. Just think of it as a finder’s fee for bringing us together. We have 40 pounds of product ready to ship. Ready to go. Are you ready?
Declan: [Laughs.] Who the hell are you?
Walter: You know. You all know exactly who I am. Say my name.
Declan: Do what? I don't–I don't have a damn clue who the hell you are.
Walter: Yeah you do. I'm the cook. I'm the man who killed Gus Fring.
Declan: Bullshit. Cartel got Fring.
Walter: You sure?
[Declan glances at Mike, who shakes his head.]
Walter: That's right. Now say my name.
Declan: ...You're Jumbo.
Walter: You're goddamn right.
