Tubby joins the circus but ends up as a water carrier for the elephants. he really wants to become a star under the big top bu walking the tightrope. however, tubby takes an embarrassing fall. a
Ly old elephant helps him to see that music is tubby's special talent.

Tubby (tim hauser)
When the buds begin to pop
And the robin takes a hop
Everybody says, "it's spring today!"
I suppose that may be so,
But I'd like for you to know
I can always tell it's spring another way/
I can always tell it's spring
When the circus comes to town;
It makes me want to sing
When I bump into a clown!
When the circus marches past
And the band goes tan-ta-ra
I know it's spring at last,
And my heart goes, "oom-pah!"

Tubby's idea (cheryl bentyne)
Alley-oop, oom-pah,
Alley-oop, oom-pah,
An acrobat you ought to be,
Alley-oop, oom-pah,
Alley-oop, oom-pah,
Hey tubby! you'd be a sight to see!

Elephant (alan paul)
Be yourself, you can't be anybody else,
Be yourself is my advice to you,
Or else you'll always be a nobody,
So be yourself, or else.
A hippopotamus
Would look very curious
Flying like a butterfly;
A fierce and hungry lion
Would look silly tryin'
To bake an apple pie.
I think you'd get a laugh
If you saw a tall giraffe
Swinging by his tail from a tree;
I think an octopus
Would look quite ridiculous
Knitting sweaters at the bottom of the sea.
So be yourself, and do the things that you know best,
Be yourself, I think that you'd be happiest
By being no one else but you
