When my granddaughter was born I wrote a song for her. She's 9 yrs. old now and still treasures grandpa's banjo tune.

THE ELEPHANT AND THE TURTLE

The elephant said to the turtle,
“There’s no need to hide from me.
I'm not about to hurt you,
for we're alike you see"

The turtle said to the elephant,
“How can that be true?
Maybe you need glasses,
I'm small compared to you"

The turtle went on saying,
"I've no trunk with which to smell,
big ears like yours to hear with,
and you don't have a shell"

The turtle finally asked him,
"You think that you're like me?
Explain to me dear elephant,
just what it is you see"

The elephant said to the turtle,
"It's not the outer parts.
The secret to our brotherhood ...
We both have gentle hearts"

Great tune! Can I steal the lines for my great grandson? He'd love to hear something like that.

Thank you.   I'll send it to his mother tonight.  I'm sure he will be tickled and want to hear it over and over.  Maybe I'll try to put a little tune to it while I'm at it.

Very cute. It reminds me of the very lovely childrens book "Something Else".
