I'm the king of the jungle, they call me the tiger man
I'm the king of the jungle, they call me the tiger man
When you cross my path, you got your own life in your hand
Well, I get up on the mountain and I call my bearcat back
Well, I get up on the mountain and I call my bearcat back
My bearcat comes a-running and the hounddog get way back
Get back, way back, way back

Well, tell me no the hounddog is snooping around your door
Well, tell me no the hounddog is snooping around your door
If I ever catch him snooping, he will snoop no more
I'm the king of the jungle, they call me the tiger man
I'm the king of the jungle, they call me the tiger man
When you cross my path, you got your own life in your hand
