Long ago way down in the jungle Someone got an inspiration for a tune And that jingle came from the jungle Became famous mighty soon Thrills and chills it sends through you Hot so hot it burns you too Though it's just the growl of the Tiger It was written in a syncopated way More and more they yell for the Tiger Everywhere you go today, they're shoutin: Where's that Tiger? Where's that Tiger? Where's that Tiger? Where's that Tiger? Hold that Tiger! Hold that Tiger! Hold that Tiger! C-L-E-M-S-O...N!
