First LyricsEdit

All: Hup two three four
Keep it up, two three four
Hup two three four
Keep it up, two three four
Hathi: Company, sound off!

All: Oh, the aim of our patrol
Slob Elephant: Is a question rather droll
All: For to march and drill
Over field and hill [all trumpet]
Hathi: Is a military goal
All: Is a military goal

Hup two three four
Dress it up, two three four

By the ranks or single file
Over ev'ry jungle mile
Oh, we stamp and crush
Through the underbrush
Hathi, Jr.: [trumpet]
In a military style
All: In a military style

Hathi: Hup two three four
Keep it up, two three four

Reprise LyricsEdit

All: Oh we march from here to there
Slob Elephant: And it doesn't matter where
All: You can hear us push through the deepest bush
Hup two three four
Hathi: With a military air
All: With a military air [trumpet]

We're a cracker jack brigade
On a pachyderm parade
But we'd rather stroll to a waterhole
Hathi, Jr.: Hup two three four
All: For a furlough in the shade
