Colonel Hathi’s March song lyrics

Song lyrics to Colonel Hathi’s March, Words and Music by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, performed in Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book

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

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

Hup two thee four
Dress it up, two thee four
By the ranks or single file
Over ev’ry jungle mile
Oh, we stamp and crush
Through the underbrush
In a military style
In a military style

Hup two three four
Keep it up, two three four
Reprise

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

We’re a cracker jack brigade
On a pachyderm parade
But we’d rather stroll to a waterhole
Hup two three four
For a furlough in the shade
