Thread Name: Lyr Add: 'The Wild West Show'. Do you sing it?
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: 'The Wild West Show'. Do you sing it
I learned this song from Trevor Jones in Avalon on Catalina Island in 1976 were I met Natalie Woods and Robert Wagner who frequented the bar where Trevor played.

I don't sing it much but on occasion....when I have the right crowd. Trevor was Welsh I believe and knew more songs than a person has a right to recall.

The verse (with a fine welsh-slightly brit but different- accent):

In the next cage sports fans
we have this most amazing creature known as a bengal tiger

fantastic, unbelievable, no shit
what the hell's a bengal tiger

well the bengal tiger is one of God's most amazing creatures
it is an 800 pound pussy that eats you!
