about

In 1903 Topsy the elephant is electrocuted in public by Thomas Edison. Her ghost swears revenge.

lyrics

Edison’s electrical elephant finds it hard to understand the experiment
what exactly are they tryin to do?
what exactly are they tryin to prove?
perplexing as the pachyderm harassment
passes points of only being embarrassment
the outcome of the testing is clear,
the end of her life is near
“she's too dumb to know too dumb to care, too dumb to know too dumb to care”

but the underestimated intelligence
of this five hundred pound living filament
sparked an afterlife agenda that day,
to haunt Edison to his grave
now Edison's electrical elephant
paranormally displays diligence
giving Edison the scare of his life,
singing the same song every night

“I’ll haunt your nights, haunt your days, your dinner lunch breakfast.
an elephant never forgets, oh an elephant never forgets”

“I can remember fire, I can remember smoke.
I can remember every single word you ever spoke
every word you spoke”

“I’ll haunt your nights, haunt your days, your dinner lunch breakfast.
an elephant never forgets, oh an elephant never forgets” x4
