She will dream like an ocean as she hangs in the air She will dream the dream, a pachyderm nightmare
She will dream like a river as she dangles from a rope She will strangle on tears, a bride about to elope
Bigger than a battleship, taller than a tower, mightier than Caesar and all Rome's power Big Mary ain't scary quite to the contrary she's a little flower
A prayer in an elephant's ear is worth two in the wind A bushel and a peck and a knot around your neck must mean it's the end
She will dream like a dreadnought, a leviathan of the air She will dream like a sunspot, a trapezist without a care
Bigger than a battleship, taller than a tower, mightier than Caesar with all Rome's power... Big Mary ain't scary quite to the contrary she's a little flower
She will dream of Charley and the last thing he said I hate to do this, darling, but I gotta hang you dead 'Cause you are bigger than a battleship, taller than a tower...
On a foggy and rainy September 13, 1916, the Charles Sparks Circus hung an elephant named Mary from a railroad crane in Erwin, Tennessee in front of a crowd of 2,500, including the town's children.
