Den lille elefanten

Den lille elfanten 2014.png



Den lille elefanten, han tar sin store fot,
Og dytter på litt lort som han gjerne vil ha bort.
Så famler han på mammas kropp med snabelen på topp.
Han vil ha melk fra mammaen sin, men rekker ikke opp.

Den lille elefanten, han tar en sølevask.
Han bruker det som solkrem, gnidd inn med store klask.
Så fyller han sin snabel opp med mange liter vann,
Og spruter litt på tanten sin, i mens hun vasker han.

Så leker han med broren, han har en lang, hvit tann,
Og kaster sand med snab'len i elvens mørke vann.
Der sitter krokodillen stor med mange tenner små.
Den sitter der og venter på at tantene skal gå.

For solen skinner alltid i elefantens land.
Den svir så ubarmhjertig, der jorden blir til sand.
Den lille elefanten går, i skyggen av sin bror.
Der vil han gå i flere år, til han blir stor som mor.

Translation



The tiny elephant takes (lifts) his large foot
and pushes around a tiny turd/piece of dirt that he wants to get out of the way
The he fumbles over his mom's body with his trunk held high;
He wants some milk from his mommy, but can't reach up.

The tiny elephant takes a mudbath,
He uses it as suntan lotion, rubbed in, with large splats
Then he fills his trunk up with several litres of water
and splashes some on his auntie, while she washes him

Then he plays with his brother; he has a long white tooth,
and throws some sand with his trunk into the dark/murky waters of the river
The big crocodile sits there with his all his teeth so small.
It sits there waiting for the aunties to go (away)

For the sun always shines in the land of the elephants
It burns unrelentlessly, where the earth turns to sand
The little elephant walks in the shadow of his brother
There he will walk for several years, until he's big like his mother
