Hunting Tigers Out In India - 2007 Remastered Version Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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)
Verse 2
Hunting tigers can be ripping fun
Like three blind mice, see the hunters run
Verse 3
Hunting tigers out in India
Out in, out in, out in India (yuh)
Verse 4
You all know how beastly tigers are
Out in, out in, out in India
Verse 5
They bite
They scratch
They make an awful fuss
It's no use stroking them and saying "puss puss puss"
Oh
Hunting tigers out in India
Out in, out in, out in India (yuh)
Verse 6
They bite
They scratch
They make an awful fuss
It's no use stroking them and saying "puss puss puss"
Oh
Hunting tigers out in India
Out in, out in, out in India (yuh)
Verse 7
Spoken: "I say, Joe (?), it's jolly frightening out there."
"Nonsense, dear boy, you should be like me."
"But look at you! You're shaking all over!"
"Shaking? You silly goose, I'm just doing the watusi, that's all."
Verse 8
Tigers don't go out on rainy nights
They've no need to whet their appetites
Hunting tigers out in India
Out in, out in, out in India (yuh)
Verse 9
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)
Verse 10
Hunting tigers can be ripping fun
Like three blind mice, see the hunters run
Verse 11
Hunting tigers out in India
Out in, out in, out in India (yuh)
Hunting tigers out in India
Out in, out in, out in India (yuh!)
