Lyrics[]

Lions and tigers, look how they move
Slip through the jungle, movin' so smooth
Down to the water, over the plain
Leavin' their lovers and back again

Oh, lions and tigers, what can I do?
Dial the number, soon I'll get through
Don't leave me hangin' on the line too long
Waggin' your tail all night long
All night long!

Well, there you go now, you've walked out that door
Like nothin's gonna bring you back no more
And I'm wanderin' in circles so small
Hopin' to heaven you'll call

Lions and tigers all of the time
They got Bain de Soleil, so much to go by
Somethin's gone crazy, just gotta get through
I swear to you, baby, I'm a lion for you!
Lyin' for you!

Well, there you go now, you've walked out that door
Like nothin's gonna bring you back no more
And I'm wanderin' in circles so small
Hopin' to heaven you'll call
Love you to pieces, that's all
Wanderin' in circles,
wanderin' in circles so small

I'm a lion for you!
Lyin' for you!
Lyin' for you!

Well, there you go now, you've walked out that door
Like nothin's gonna bring you back no more
And I'm wanderin' in circles so small
Hoping to heaven you'll call
Love you to pieces, that's all

Well, there you go now, you've walked out that door
Like nothin's gonna bring you back no more
And I'm wanderin' in circles so small
Hoping to heaven you'll call
Love you to pieces, that's all

(fade out)
Well, there you go now, you've walked out that door
Like nothin's gonna bring you back no more
And I'm wanderin' in circles so small
Hopin' to heaven you'll call
Love you to pieces, that's all

Notes[]

  • Bain de Soleil is French for sunbathing, invoking the imagery of how lions and tigers, as well as other cats, stretch out in the sun to relax.
  • This song uses the quote as the reference from The Wizard of Oz.
