"This is a well known children's song in Thailand and is taught to children in primary school. The melody is adapted from a Thai classical piece called พม่าเขว 'Phama Khwee'. The word น้อง (nong) in line 2 is a form of address or pronoun used with someone younger than the speaker." -Guava in Thailand

ช้าง ช้าง ช้าง ช้าง ช้าง
น้องเคยเห็นช้างหรือเปล่า
ช้างมันตัวโตไม่เบา
จมูกยาวๆ เรียกว่างวง
มีเขี้ยวใต้งวงเรียกว่างา
มีหูมีตาหางยาว

Elephant, elephant, elephant, elephant, elephant,
Have you ever seen an elephant or not?
The elephant, it is extremely big
With a long nose called a trunk.
It has fangs beneath the trunk called tusks.
It has ears, it has eyes and a long tail.
