lyrics

You can't eat the elephant whole
You have to carve it up or else you will choke
You can't drink the lake in one go
You have to sip it down or else you will drown

You can't eat the elephant whole
You have to carve it up or else you will choke
You can't shift the pyramid whole
You shift it brick by brick lest you make yourself sick

I'm choking - pat me on the back
I'm choking - pat me on the back
And carve the elephant up

You can't eat the elephant whole
You have to carve it up or else you will choke
You can't drink the lake in one go
You have to sip it down or else you will drown

Man kann sich nicht jeden Schuh anziehen
Wer über was Wasser geht, der muss Barfuß gehn
You can't shift the pyramid whole
You shift it brick by brick lest you make yourself... sick

You can't eat the elephant whole
You have to carve it up or else you will choke
You can't drink the lake in one go
You have to sip it down or else you will drown
