Punk is not dead

What a Friday evening

After such a energy eating week and just a few hours before the next heavy lockdown in my region we had powerful a great evening with some friends, good music, beer and BBQ.

A song from the past was the story of the evening and you may enjoy this music

Nellie the Elephant

I like this comment

This was actually banned from my local pubs jukebox after it all got out of hand every time it was played.


Lyrics

To Bombay
A travelling circus came
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

Oooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh...

[Chorus]
Nellie the elephant pack her trunk and
Said goodbye to the circus
Off she road with a trumpety trump
Trump trump trump
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
And trundled off to the jungle
Off she road with a trumpety trump
Trump trump trump

[Verse 2]
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

Oooooooooooooooooohhhh...

[Chorus]
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and
Said goodbye to the circus
Off she road with a trumpety trump
Trump trump trump
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
And trundled off to the jungle
Off she road with a trumpety trump
Trump trump trump

[Bridge]
The head of the herd was calling far far away
They meet one night in silver light
On the road to Mandalay

Oooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhh...

[Chorus]
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and
Said goodbye to the circus
Off she road with a trumpety trump
Trump trump trump
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
And trundled of to the jungle
Off she road with a trumpety trump
Trump trump trump

Como tu soy gran fanático del punk, saludos, buen post

My translation to German says

Wie Du bin ich ein großer Fan von Punk, Prost, guter Beitrag.

So I like to answer

Sí, un poco de buen punk es divertido de vez en cuando y "Nellie the Elephant" es una de esas canciones que "nunca olvidaré".
