Night in Dimdum land

When at night, and  Dimdum people sleep,

the elephant and the little dog

go out and about to have some  fun

Of course this can’t be done

when it is light!

As there is a golden rule in Dimdum land that says:

Elephants  and dogs can’t play together!

No! No way! That can’t be right!

It really is  a serious matter!

The King has said it is a crime,

The minister, the duke, the pope

all say: “Keep them creatures  on a rope!”

But nothing can be done about it

When it is night in Dimdum land

There they go play in the sand

As no one can keep friends  apart

Not when the night still has a heart…

Together we are strong!

My friend is stronger than me

but when we play together

two elephants we seem to be


He  is my friend, you see

and it doesn’t matter

that he is much stronger than me


So maybe he is very big and tall

but he never says he minds I’m not

nor  that for an elephant I am too small


My friend is wiser than me

He can write every letter

But he can’t rhyme words like me


So don’t say:  “you are just a dog” to me

No one can tell me to be otherwise

I am an elephant if I so  want to be

When I am with my friend who’s taller

I also am an elephant,  just smaller
