Hunting Tigers Out In Indiah

(the matthew show)
July 27, 2013
written by Evans, Damerell and Hargreaves (for the Bonzo Dog Band)
commissioned as part of Legacy Leadership Academy tuition fundraiser, summer 2013
With big, hungry tigers table manners have no place
(Dear dear dear no, dear dear dear no, dear dear oh dear no)
After they have eaten you they never say their grace
(Dear dear dear no, dear dear dear no, dear dear oh dear no)
Hunting tigers can be ripping fun
Like three blind mice, see the hunters run

CHORUS:
Hunting tigers out in India
Out in, out in, out in India
You all know how beastly tigers are
Out in, out in, out in India

They bite, they scratch
They make an awful fuss
It's no use stroking them and saying "puss puss puss"

(CHORUS)

They bite, they scratch
They make an awful fuss
It's no use stroking them and saying "puss puss puss"

(CHORUS)

Tigers don’t go out on rainy nights
They’ve no need to whet their appetites

(CHORUS)

How many tigers can you find with forks and serviettes?
(Dear dear dear no, dear dear dear no, dear dear oh dear no)
Don’t care in what part of you they fix their fretwork sets
(Dear dear dear no, dear dear dear no, dear dear oh dear no)
Hunting tigers can be ripping fun
Like three blind mice, see the hunters run

(CHORUS)
