I live in Tigerland, I'm an indiana man
I'm used to walk around with a snake in my hann
Dr Bombay is my name and my father has the same
But everything it changed here in Tigerland

S.O.S. The tiger took my father
S.O.S. The tiger took my brother
S.O.S. The tiger took my mother
S.O.S. The tiger took my family

We lived outside Calcutta in a little wooden house
I lived there with my family and 21 cows
But now they all are gone and life is not so fun
But what can you expect here in Tigerland

S.O.S. The tiger took my father
S.O.S. The tiger took my brother
S.O.S. The tiger took my mother
S.O.S. The tiger took my family

Song Production Information


This is a song by the "mysterious Indian", DR.BOMBAY. The strong synth riffs at the beginning and the amusing sound effects in the middle make this a really good song for beatmania, so we were able to license it for use in the game. It's a little hard, but good things come in the dawn after the clear of a song ...

ps: I meant that it's good as an EXTRA STAGE, but that may have been a little misleading. Sorry to all of you who thought there was some other meaning to that line.

Video Production Information


I think there are a lot of people who are struck with the impact, power, divergence, and plain fun in this movie. DR.BOMBAY becomes a hunter and chases after a ferocious tiger (tiger person?) in this video, but since we had to cut it down to a game sized version, we weren't sure how it would come across. I hope you'll look for the full video on the music video channels. Incidentally, if you listen closely to the lyrics, you'll see how they relate to the video (it makes it even more fun!).
