lirik lagu tigers in africa – john edmond

Loading...

my little boy came home from school the other day
he told me what his teacher said with oh such great dismay
she said in africa, there are no tigers to be found, there’s no man on the moon, and it’s not cheese though it’s yellow, big, and round, and there’s no treasure in gold at the rainbow’s end, you’re growin’ up, and fantasizin’s over now my friend

but i said “yes, there’s tigers in africa, and a man once walked upon the moon, and there’s treasure in gold at the end of the rainbow, my little boy, and i wouldn’t lie to you”

and so i took him to the mighty zambezi
i said this time your teacher’s wrong, now just you wait and see
we launched our boat outside a place they call edeka drum
and soon our lines and spoons were flashing in the midday sun
and somewhere near msuna, he hooked a fisherman’s dream
with tiger stripes and gnashing t**th, it danced upon the string

and i said “yes, there’s tigers in africa, and a man once walked upon the moon, and there’s treasure in gold at the end of the rainbow, my little boy, and i wouldn’t lie to you”

that night around the campfire in the cool and gentle breeze
we watched the moon rise up and it looked like a piece of cheese
then we counted stars and planets, how they shined and shined
and i told him about neil armstrong’s step for all mankind
and all about the astronauts and moon buggies in sp*ce
and how goin’ to the moon was such a great, exciting race

and i said “yes, there’s tigers in africa, and a man once walked upon the moon, and there’s treasure in gold at the end of the rainbow, my little boy, and i wouldn’t lie to you”

next day it rained, but later when the storm was gone
a multi*coloured rainbow rose up in that glorious morn
and raindrops clung to leaves and shone like jewels all around
and the rainbow seemed to end right near us in the ground
it was a treasured memory forever to behold
i put my arms around my boy and said “now there’s your treasure in gold”

and i said “yeah, there’s tigers in africa, and a man once walked upon the moon, and there’s treasure in gold at the end of the rainbow, my little boy, and i wouldn’t lie to you”
