Elephant in the Room Lyrics Meanings

Elephant in the Room Lyrics

Thank God for fermentation
Fermentation for the wine
Thank wine for conversation
With these relatives in-law of mine

Thank these relatives for you, babe
Thank you for the bouncing boy
Doing the best that he can do to keep this

Family entertained as it navigates
The treacherous waters of talkin' small
On this of all Thanksgivings
Even the weather can go from 0 to an all out brawl
In seconds, just listen:

"'been kind of a warm November"
"God, you and the Climate Change again
Why you gotta be all doom and gloom?"
Whoo, boy! 'Least no one's mentioned the giant elephant in the room


Oh, feels good to be together
Whether you think the world is ending soon
Or about to get better
So when the bottle's being passed, better fill your glass
Cheers, we're in it for the long haul

On this of all Thanksgivings when
Even our sports can go from zero to an all out brawl
In seconds, be careful:

"Have you ever spent time in Cleveland?" "NO!"
"South Side of Chicago?" "NO!"
"St. Louis?" "NO!"
"Ever heard about a fellow named Ricketts?" "YES!"
"Anything to do with his politics?" "NO!"
How 'bout them Cubs?
"How 'bout them Cubs?"

Just don't you mention a giant elephant
I mentioned it once and I think I got away with it

Just say, "Hey, what giant elephant
In the room?"
