Subject: RE: Origins: The Hole in the Elephant's Bottom
Hi Ya,

My father who was born in 1917, in Surrey, England used to sing this song to my sister and I - we loved it as naughty as it was!! He had learn't it as a wee lad.

The chorus he sung was:

Cheerio Cheerio
Cheerio Cheerio
Through the hole in the elephant's bottom.

Hope that helps, Regards, Anna
