Why the Elephant Painted Its Toenails Red

I asked the little elephant,
“Why are your toenails red?”
“It’s really very simple,”
Is what I think he said.

It seems the little elephant
Was playing hide-and-seek,
With all the other animals
In our back yard last week.

Elephants are kind of big,
It’s hard to hide, you see.
He painted all his toenails red
And hid up in our cherry tree.
