Tiger
by Fabian

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!

On this day in 1959 {May 24th} Fabian performed "Tiger" on the CBS-TV variety program 'The Ed Sullivan Show'...
One month later on June 15th, 1959 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #55; five weeks later it would peak at #3 {for 2 weeks} and it spent 13 weeks on the Top 100...
On the same 'Sullivan' show he also performed "Turn Me Loose", at the time the song was in it's second of two weeks at #9 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart, and that was also it's peak position of the chart, it also spent 13 weeks on the Top 100...
Between January 1959 and October 1960 he had ten records on the Top 100; three would make the Top 10, his other Top 10 record was "Hound Dog Man" at #9, and all three made the Top 10 in 1959...

Rick fisher

Definitely Fabian's best. Summer 1959.

Hank Austin

This sounds like something Connie Francis would have recorded.. same beat and everything... of course Fabian is MUCH better looking!!!

MaleOrderBride

The song almost sounds like "Jailhouse Rock"!

MikeBlitzMag

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

LINDA BROWN

I still have my stuffed tiger from when I was 2.  I'm 59 now.

1:21 I always thought that the main solo has a counterpoint feel to it. Unfortunately, I'm no expert in music, so I can't really tell if it's true or not.
