Pachyderm Nightmare

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.
