Tiger
Fabian Lyrics


Hey, lumpa sugar, you look kinda sweet
Cuter than a baby walkin' down the street
When I look into your eyes, I want to leap
I can't conceal that you make me feel

Like a tiger, ooh, ooh, ooh, like a tiger
Ooh, ooh, ooh, just to see you smile nearly drives me wild
I want to growl wow!

I'm feelin' stronger than a grizzly bear
Soarin' like an eagle flyin' through the air
When I get you in my arms, you'd better beware
I go insane 'cause I can't be tamed

Like a tiger, ooh, ooh, ooh, like a tiger
Ooh, ooh, ooh, just to see you smile nearly drives me wild
I want to growl wow!

You keep my heart jumpin' like a kangaroo
Floatin' like an onion in a bowl of stew
Baby, ev'ry time you come in view
I run like an antelope to get to you

I'm your tiger and you're my mate
Hurry up, buttercup, and don't be late
I might get mad if I have to wait
Come right now 'cause I';m on the prowl

Like a tiger, ooh, ooh, ooh, like a tiger
Ooh, ooh, ooh, just to see you smile nearly drives me wild
I want to growl wow!

You keep my heart jumpin' like a kangaroo
Floatin' like an onion in a bowl of stew
Baby, ev'ry time you come in view
I run like an antelope to get to you

I'm your tiger and you're my mate
Hurry up, buttercup, and don't be late
I might get mad if I have to wait
Come right now 'cause I'm on the prowl

Like a tiger, ooh, ooh, ooh, like a tiger
Ooh, ooh, ooh, just to see you smile nearly drives me wild
I want to growl wow!

One of the highlights of the vaunted Chancellor Records catalog. A classic.

Back in the day, they said Fabian couldn't "sing", but this song's still great.

Rick fisher

Definitely Fabian's best. Summer 1959.

"you keep my heart jumping like a kangaroo, floating like an onion in a bowl of stew"
Whoever told you music was better back then had an extra chromosome floating around.

The lyrics aren’t the music though. The musical structure and chord progressions of yesteryear where more complex and interesting. In modern times music has simplified massively as it is more marketable. Don’t get me wrong this song isn’t a particularly complex one. It’s a simple rhythm guitar over a pretty traditional drumming rhythm but then again Fabian didn’t really define the genre or add much to it as far as I know. To look at the great music we really ought to look at those who defined trends and created truly unique music ala Elvis, The Beatles, Hendrix, etc Modern day music is rarely experimental or unique, the only one who comes to mind who really explores music and has her own unique sound is Billie and she deserves to be commended for it. But the music industry really has gobbled up a lot of the uniqueness and exploratory nature of music

At least the lyrics werej't filthy like they are now. This was more about being able to dance to it...
