An effervescing elephant

Effervescing Elephant is a track from Syd Barrett’s second and final studio album of new material released by former Pink Floyd frontman

An effervescing elephant / With tiny eyes, and great big trunk / Once whispered to the tiny ears / The ears of one inferior / That by next June he’d die, oh yeah!

Effervescing Elephant was pastiche of the verse form of Hilaire Belloc’s Cautionary Tales for Children.

In contrast to some of Syd Barrett‘s other songs mentioning one or two animals, Effervescing Elephant contains references to a whole jungle full of animals. The video he made for it is pretty sad and depressing, and rarely seen, so here you go!
