                Nellie The Elephant - The Toy Dolls

Intro:  Em B7 Em    C B7 Em

Em B7 Em    G                 B
To Bombay a travelling circus came,
    F#7                     B            F#7            B
they brought an intelligent elephant and Nellie was her name.

One dark night she slipped her iron chain
and off she ran to Hindustan and was never seen again

music stops

chorus: faster
E                                        A                    E
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and said good-bye to the circus
A                  E                F#7    B7     E 
Off she went with a trumpety-trump, TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!
    E                                    A                        E
Now Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and trumbled back to the jungle
A                   E               F#7    B7     E
Off she went with a trumpety-trump. TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!

Night by night, she danced to the circus band,
when Nellie was leading the big parade she looked so proud and grand

No more tricks for Nellie to perform
they taught her how to take a bow and she took the crowd by storm

Music stops

after last chord: C

    Bb                           F    Bb  F
The head of the herd was calling far, far away;
     G7                   C                   G7      C
they met one night in the silver light on the road to Mandalay
