Eleven yellow elephants
Were sitting on the floor
They looked down at the paycheck
And realized they were poor

The eleven yellow elephants
Were discriminated against
Sadly it caused them to be so poor
Their pen was a rickety fence

Eleven yellow elephants
Had a hard time getting hired
Businesses wanted grey elephants
The yellow ones were fired
