Here's a good one...

So leave, you miners, leave;
oh, leave, you miners leave.
Take my advice, kill off your lice,
or else go up in the mountains.
Oh, no, lots of dust,
Iím goiní to the city to go on a bust

I'll take that Paula. It's actually a California traditional song chorus from the 1800's. Many people performed it in various ways, but it is indeed about going to "see the elephant". This is a colloquialism spawned during the Gold Rush to describe the intense curiosity over the discovery of gold in California.

"Oh, no, lots of dust,
I’m goin’ to the city to go on a bust"

Refers to finding gold and going to San Francisco to spend it all on liquor and women.

Your Turn!

The Tennessee Waltz Tom Jones did an awesome version of this with the Chieftains (Long Black Veil, 1994), I think Frank Zappa helped with it too.

Redd Stewart wrote it, Pee Wee King composed/sang it.
