You can see all the Jumbos as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of...

my basketball coach went and kicked me off the team,
for wearing high heeled sneakers and acting like a jumbo.

Frankly Jumbo, I don't give a damn.

Here's looking at you, Jumbo.

I love the smell of Jumbo in the morning.

Jumbo phone home.

You're gonna need a bigger Jumbo.

We'd better get back.
It'll be dark soon and Jumbos
Mostly come at night,
Mostly.

ALL YOUR JUMBOS ARE POOR
UNFORTUNATE VICTIMS OF
SYSTEMS BEYOND THEIR CONTROL

Where did Jumbo go
When she went to town?
Who are all those creeps
That she brings around?

Jumbo once tried to test me. I ate her liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Open the pod bay doors, Jumbo.

They call me Mister Jumbo!

If you build it, Jumbo will come.

You had me at "Jumbo".

Goin' home, late last night
suddenly I got a fright
Yeah I looked through the window and surprised what I saw
Jumbos with Boots dancing with a squashed dwarf, all right now!

Jumbos wear boots and you gotta believe me
yeah I saw it, I saw it, I tell you no lies
Yeah Jumbos wear boots and you gotta believe me
I saw it, I saw it with my own two eyes, well all right now!

So I went to the doctor, see what he could give me
he said "Son, son, you've gone too far.
'cause smokin' and jumboin' is all that you do, you gonna wind-up in a big pile o' jumbo pooooooooo."

Jumbmandias

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and jumbo legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a jumbo visage lies, whose frown,
And jumbo lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these jumbo things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Jumbo, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that jumbo wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

EL PASO

Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
I fell in love with a Mexican Jumbo.
Night-time would find me in Rosa's cantina;
Music would play and Jumblina would whirl.

Blacker than night were the eyes of Jumblina,
Wicked and evil while casting a spell.
My love was deep for this Mexican Jumbo;
I was in love but in vain, I could tell.

One night a wild young cowboy came in,
Wild as the West Texas wind.
Dashing and daring,
A drink he was sharing
With wicked Jumblina,
The girl that I loved.

So in anger I

Challenged his right for the love of this Jumbo.
Down went his hand for the gun that he wore.
My challenge was answered in less than a heart-beat;
The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor.

Just for a moment I stood there in silence,
Shocked by the FOUL EVIL deed I had done.
Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there;
I had but one chance and that was to run.

Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran,
Out where the horses were tied.
I caught a good one.
It looked like it could run.
Up on its back
And away I did ride,

Just as fast as I

Could from the West Texas town of El Paso
Out to the bad-lands of New Mexico.

* * * * * * *

Back in El Paso my life would be worthless.
Everything's gone in life; nothing is left.
It's been so long since I've seen the young Jumbo
My love is stronger than my fear of death.

I saddled up and away I did go,
Riding alone in the dark.
Maybe tomorrow
A bullet may find me.
Tonight nothing's worse than this
Pain in my heart.

And at last here I


Am on the hill overlooking El Paso;
I can see Rosa's cantina below.
My love is strong and it pushes me onward.
Down off the hill to Jumblina I go.

Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys;
Off to my left ride a dozen or more.
Shouting and shooting I can't let them catch me.
I have to make it to Rosa's back door.

Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel
A deep burning pain in my side.
Though I am trying
To stay in the saddle,
I'm getting weary,
Unable to ride.

But my love for


Jumblina is strong and I rise where I've fallen,
Though I am weary I can't stop to rest.
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle.
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest.

From out of nowhere Jumblina has found me,
Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side.
Cradled by two plus-size arms that I'll die for,
One little kiss and Jumblina, good-bye. :cry:
