The Lyrics

I acknowledge another Lion parody to this song, by Alvin Rhodes...entitled, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" ...Also, Lion should be sung as one syllable
I keep a half-ton lion as a pet
If neighbors are real loud, like they can get
Along the avenue where they all set,
I Walk The Lion, I Walk The Lion

I'm just a quiet guy, don't have no vice
Mind my own business, folks say I'm nice
Sure, you can push me, but if I'm pushed twice,
I Walk The Lion, I Walk The Lion

Leo is a lot like me, don't growl a lot
Just lays around, and claims the turf he's got
But if a threat'ning source invades our spot
Fur will be flyin'. I Walk The Lion

I never scream or yell or raise a fuss
Just shove a turkey leg in Leo's big puss
To stress the fact that he's carnivorous
I Walk The Lion, I Walk The Lion

I got a problem with the pacing. It is funny but to me, I am not fond of the parody using the I Walk the Lion twice in a line. Cause TOS went "Because you're mine, I walk the line" and "I Walk the Lion, I Walk the Lion" seemed a bit too short of creativity. Like the idea but I am sorry for the score of 3/4/3. Really, I am.

I think you meant "but keep the 2 syllable pronunciation in the first line, er lion" - good one AFW - you are the LINE KING - 555

Wonderfully simple, peaceful and savage at the same time. Purring 5s.
