Glasses Bird:
This is highly confidential, This is just between us two.
But Mrs. Toucanella told me, Horton's talking to a who.
Big Hair Bird:(spoken)
A Who!?! Who's a Who?
Glasses Bird:
Well, my dear, that's just the point. There isn't any who.
Horton's brain is out of joint.
Big Hair Bird: (spoken)
For goodness sake -- A Who?
Now, I know you won't repeat this. Strictly entre nous.
Of course.
But Mrs. Tessie Toucanella is an unimpeachable source.
And she says irrefutably - it's indubitably a fact...
Horton's schizo-witsa-fistic. In other words, he's cracked.
He ought to be psycho-wangwalized.
Glasses Bird:
Oh no. Psycho-o-analysis is too expensive for an elephant;I nearly charge by the pound.
(Pssst, Whisper) Mrs. Toucanella said... (Pssst) Mrs. Toucanella said...
Undoubtedly, it all goes back to some heredity trait.
I've been reading quite a bit - about heredity of late.
And the Uncle of Horton's cousin was an elephant named Nate.
Who had such grand illusions and confusions, aberrations and contusions...
- and he believed he was the father in law of Catherine the Great.
Mrs. Toucanella told me that he's giddy as a kid.
Mrs. Toucanella told me he's knitty as a knid.
Big Hair Bird:
Horton's flipped his lid!
Glasses Bird:
Mrs. Toucanella told me that he's manic and depressive,
retrogressive and recessive -- and progressively excessively, possessively, oppressively acquessive.
Big Hair Bird: (spoken)
Mrs. Toucanella said THAT!?!
Big Hair Bird:
Well my dears, if that's the case - This neighborhood's degenerating into a most unwholesome place!
Glasses Bird:
With demented elephants, yet.
We're going to get away from here as fast as we can get!
