White Elephant

by Wallenberg



A song created around the expression "white elephant", a valuable possession which its owner cannot dispose of and whose cost exceeds its usefulness. Only in this song the elephant is gray and therefor have neither spiritual nor materialistic value. A plain everyday elephant without diamonds in his tusks. However, it turns out, he is good and virtuous, and ideal for long rides in the white mountains while playing the banjo. Maybe, the song can also be seen as a metaphor for the costs and efforts involved in creating a piece of music.
