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


One day in the warm jungle the Tiger took my snake
It wasn't really fun it was a big mistake
I took my brother's slingshot and shot the tiger down
This is how we do it here in Tigerland
