Jumbo, go away
Jumbo, go away
Jumbo, go away
Jumbo leave me alone
Get your head off my bone
I wanna go home

Jumbo lighten up
Jumbo lighten up
Jumbo lighten up
Jumbo give me a break
Lighten up on my snake
That's all I can take

It seems I can't explain
The way I feel about you
You just don't understand
You're from Kalamazoo . . .

You got to realize
Our little romance deal
Will not materialize
Into a thing that you'd call REAL

Jumbo gotta go
Jumbo gotta go
Jumbo gotta go
Jumbo better get back
(Get back, Jumbo)
Or your eye will get black
When I give you a smack

Jumbo don't you cry
Jumbo don't you cry
Jumbo don't you cry
Jumbo this is good-bye
(Good-bye, Jumbo)
I ain't gonna lie
So wash up your pie

Wash up your pie
Wash up your pie
(Have you ever heard about soap and water, darling?)
Wash up your pie
(Yeah)
Wash up your pie

Jumbo, go away
