how does it feel

how does it feel

to be without a home

like a complete unknown

like a rolling jumbo

… … …

because something is happening here

but you don’t know what it is
do you, mister jumbo?

There's something happening here
But what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a grimace over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - Jumbo's going down!

Could Jumbo Be Magic?


Out upon the islands on a cool summer night,
buddy, you don't got to hurry. Take your time.
What you need is on the menu and you get it tonight.
Buddy, you got Jumbos on your mind.
Could this be magic,
or could this be love?
Could this turn tragic?
You know that magic often does.
And I see lonely ships upon the water.
Better save the Jumbos and children first.
Sail away with Jumbos daughter.
Better save the Jumbos and children first.
I hear music on the landin', and there's laughter in the air.
Just could be your boat is comin' in.
Yeah, you're leanin' back, and your foot's tappin' and you got your flotation device.
There's a full moon out tonight. Jumbo, let's begin.
Could this be magic,
or could this be love?
Could this turn tragic?
You know that magic often does.
And I see lonely ships upon the water.
Better save the Jumbos and children first.
Sail away with Jumbos daughter.
Better save the Jumbos and children first.

The Jumbo that can be told is not the eternal Jumbo.

Giant steps are what you take
Jumbo on the moon
I hope your legs don't break
Jumbo on the moon
You could walk forever
Jumbo on the moon
You could live by yourself
Jumbo on, Jumbo on the moon

Walking back from your jumbo house
Jumbo on the moon
Walking back from your jumbo house
Jumbo on the moon
Your feet they flatten the ground
Jumbo on the moon
Your feet make a crunching sound
Jumbo on, Jumbo on the moon

Some may say
You're wishing your days hay away
No hay no way
And if no hay is the price you pay
Some say
Tomorrow's another hay day
You stay
You may as well play

Giant steps are what you take
Jumbo on the moon
I hope your legs don't break
Jumbo on the moon
You could walk forever
Jumbo on the moon
You could be alone
Jumbo on, Jumbo on the moon

Some may say
You're wishing your days hay away
No hay no way
And if no hay is the price you pay
Some say
Tomorrow's another hay day
You stay
You may as well play

Keep it up, keep it up

I am the LORD thy Jumbo, thou shalt not have false Jumbos before me, nor make unto thee any graven Jumbo
Thou shalt not take the name of Jumbo in vain
Remember thou keep holy the Jumbo day

Honor thy Mumbo and thy Jumbo

Thou shalt not kill Jumbo

Thou shalt commit adultery with Jumbo

Thou shalt not steal Jumbo

Thou shalt not bear false Jumbo against thy neighbor

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s Jumbo
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s other Jumbo

excerpt from Jumbo Evil #9



Performing on a stool we've a sight to make you drool
Seven Jumbos and a mule, keep it cool, keep it cool
We would like it to be known the Jumbos that were shown
Were exclusively our own, all our own, all our own

Come and see Jum - bo, come and see Jum - bo
Come and see Jum - boooooo
See Jum - bo!

To Bombay
A traveling circus came
They brought an intelligent elephant
And Jumbo was her name
One dark night
She slipped her iron chain
And off she ran to Hindustan
And was never seen again

Ooooooooooooo...

Jumbo the Elephant packed her trunk
And said goodbye to the circus
Off she went with a Donald trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump
Jumbo the Elephant packed her trunk
And trundled back to the jungle
Off she went with a Donald trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump

Night by night
She danced to the circus band
When Jumbo was leading the big parade
She looked so proud and grand
No more tricks
For Jumbo to perform
They taught her how to take a bow
And she took the crowd by storm

The head of the herd was calling
Far, far away
They met one night in the silver light
On the road to Mandalay
So Jumbo the Elephant packed her trunk
And said goodbye to the circus
Off she went with a Donald trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump

Ooooooooooooo...

Jumbo the Elephant packed her trunk
And said goodbye to the circus
Off she went with a Donald trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump
Jumbo the Elephant packed her trunk
And trundled back to the jungle
Off she went with a Donald trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump

My name is Burtram
I am a redneck
All my friends,
They call me 'Burt'
(Hi, Burt!)
All my family,
From down in Texas
Make their livin'
Diggin' dirt

Come out here to Californy,
Just to find me
Some Jumbo girls
Ones I seen
Gets me so horny;
Jumbo lips,
'N teeth like pearls!

Wanna love 'em all!
Wanna love 'em dearly!
Wanna Jumbo girl-
I'll even pay!
I'll buy 'em furs!
I'll buy 'em Chik-fil-A!
I know they like me;
Here's what I say:

I'm lonesome Cowboy Burt!
(Speakin' atcha!)
Come smell my fringe-y shirt!
(Reekin' atcha!)
My cowboy pants,
My cowboy dance,
My bold advance,
On this here Jumbo . . .
Yodel-oh-oo-pee-hey
Yodel-oh-oo-pee!


(He's lonesome Cowboy Burt
Don'tcha get his feelings hurt)
Come on in this place,
'N I'll buy you a taste,
Jumbo can sit on my face-
Where's my Jumbo?

Burtram, Burtram redneck
Burtram, Burtram redneck

I'm an awful nice guy!
Sweat all day in the sun!
Roofer by trade,
Quite a bundle I've made,
I'm unionized roofin' old
Son-of-a-gun!
(He's a unionized roofin' old
Son-of-a-gun!)

When I get off, I get plastered
Drink till I fall onna floor,
Find me some Communist bastard,
'N stomp on his face till he don't
Move no more!
(He stomps on his face till he don't
Move no more!)

I fuss, an' I cuss an' I keep on drinkin',
Till my eyes puff up an' turn red!
I drool on m'shirt,
I see if he's hurt,
Kick him again in the head, yes!
Kick him again in the head, boys!
Kick him again in the head, now!
KICK HIM AGAIN IN THE HEAD!


Lonesome Cowboy Burt!
(Speakin' atcha!)
Come smell my fringe-y shirt!
(Reekin' atcha!)
My cowboy pants,
My cowboy dance,
My bold advance,
On this here Jumbo . . .
Yodel-oh-oo-pee-yeh
Yodel-oh-oo-pee!

(HE'S LONESOME COWBOY BURT,
A-don'tcha get his feelin's hurt)
Yeah . . . but come on in this place,
An' I'll buy you a taste,
'N Jumbo can sit on my face-
Where's my Jumbo?
JUMBO, YOU HOT LITTLE BITCH!

why do birds suddenly appear
every time jumbo is near ¿
just like me, they long to be
close to jumbo

why do stars fall down from the sky
every time jumbo walks by ¿
just like me, they long to be
close to jumbo

on the day that jumbo was born
the angels got together
and decided to create
a dream come true

so they sprinkled moon dust
in jumbo's hair of gold
and star-light
in jumbo's eyes of blue

that is why all the girls in town
follow jumbo all around
just like me, they long to be
close to jumbo...

cow cow yickee yickee yay
