The Lyrics

Tiger-skin rugs. When you don't expect 'em, they just might freak you out. Like this poor dude...
Backin' u-up, cause I'm quite frea-eaked
See my eye-eyes twitchin' ra-apid?
You're a hunter, so it shouldn't sho-ock me
That you ha-ave things like thi-is, cannot lie-ie
Eyes are still wi-ide, build-up's what you la-acked
No way in hell did you wa-arn me
That on your floo-oor, quite disturbingly-y flat
Is a ma-at that has blank, dead-ish eye-eyes

It's the hide of a tiger in the dead of the night
I don't care if you used your fav'rite ri-ifle
My pulse is gettin' higher cause of this awful sight
Next time, tell me 'fore I glimpse tha-at hide
Of a ti-iger

Hate to sta-ay cause, you can see-ee
No fan o-of taxide-ermy
Poor beasts stuck i-in the unca-anny-y valle-ey
Yet you sti-ill brag 'bout ki-ills in the wi-ild

"Yes, that hide, as a tiger, gave one hell of a fight
Cause he dodged ev'ry damn shot from my ri-ifle"
Look, man, all of your chatter doesn't squash down my fright
I'm still scared of the rug that's the-e hide
Of a ti-iger

Move that ru-ug, my nerves are sho-ot
Don't go o-on with your sto-ory
I'm not sayin' that your hobby is wrong
Just think, ma-an, how I fee-eel 'bout this si-ight?

It's the hide of a tiger on your floor, I think I
Might throw up, it's a feelin' I can't sti-ifle
Each time that I arrive at your house, I see this sight
Sick of seein' some wombat's pri-ize hide
Of a ti-iger

The hide of a ti-iger
Cause I am a ti-ige-er
Your hide of a ti-ige-er
It might be Ma Ti-ige-er

I guess that tiger's mum wasn't a...survivor! Get it? Cause that's the name of the band?

I'll let myself out.

nice parody or "GrrrrrEAT!!!" as Matthias put it but that "Tiger/Survivor" joke at the end was something like... well like I would've made! :) 5's

I prefer the Esso (which became Exxon) tiger to Tony, but 5s! "Put a tiger in your tank!"

You have to admit, it is a little creepy to keep a large, dead cat on your floor. Nicely done.
