Friends in Higher Places

He is an elephant, strong and carefree.

I am a mouse, quiet and tiny.

Yet he is afraid of me.

Because I have friends in high places.

I chewed through the lions rope,

You see.

When he was screaming

“Please save me!”

‘cause he was hanging from a trap

In the trees.

So I have friends in high places.

I rescued the vulture

When he had broken his wings.

I caught him with leaves

And I taught him to sing.

He was falling

From the sky.

And because of me,

Once again he will fly.

So I have friends in high places.

I have many friends more powerful than me.

So in the jungle I feel free.

Because I have friends in high places.

So the one creature the elephant is careful not to step on,

Is me

Because I have friends in high places,

You see.
