Characters singing


Uniqua: Think of all the stuff that we could share. I could lend the elephant my clothes to wear.

Austin: An elephant...dressed up in normal clothes.

Uniqua: Wouldn't she look pretty with some purple bows?

Austin: What kind of food would you give her to eat?

Uniqua: Don't know, but I bet pizza is her favorite treat.

Austin: (speaking) I thought elephants ate leaves.

Uniqua: My elephant, my pet. How perfect does it get?

Austin: You sure this is a good idea?

Uniqua: My mind is set! If there's one thing that I'm sure of, it's I'm sure I won't regret having an elephant for a pet.

Austin: (speaking) Are you sure about this, Miss Rhamaswami?

Uniqua: (speaking) Absolutely! My mind is made up!

Uniqua: (singing) I'm gonna start a major household trend: elephants instead of dogs as man's best friend.

Austin: You'll take her out for walks when it gets light...

Uniqua: And we'll all sit on the couch and watch TV at night.

Austin: You'll bathe her and scrub her feet and head.

Uniqua: And afterwards we'll sleep together in my bed. My elephant, my pet. How perfect does it get?

Austin: She's sure that it'll all work out.

Uniqua: Oh please, no sweat. If there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that I'm sure I won't regret...

Both: Having an elephant for a pet!
