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!
