Tiger Rose got new clothes
The ladies love her so
They laugh at her connections
But they don't say no
Get down high, get down low
Get your heels in tow
We don't care what
Mama don't allow here anymore

Tiger tea, tiger gee, you my Tiger Rose
Gently roll me, honey, while I sing your song
On the bank where children play ring-a-levio
Come on and show me somethin' I don't know

Good day breaking, windows shaking
At my cabin door
Love me like you did last night
Just one more time
I know it don't make sense
But then it don't intend
If you keep coming by
We'll make it up again

Get up, Johnny, sing along
Get along now, get along
Could be right, I may be wrong
Pretty soon be long gone
Lay me down in worried sleep
Listen to the sweet river weep
Thought I heard it sing a song
Delta Queen done come and gone

Tiger tea, tiger gee, you my Tiger Rose
Gently roll me, honey, while I sing your song
On the bank where children play ring-a-levio
Come on and show me somethin' I don't know

Come on, big-eyed Handsome Moll
And be my party doll
We'll live in jive-o county
'Neath the waterfall
If people say: What can you play?
Just tell 'em anything
Cut-glass spur or a silver chime
Can make 'em ring

Tiger Rose, Heaven knows
I just love you so
Maybe that's the reason
That you don't say no
You get high, get down low
You my rodeo
We don't care what Mama don't allow here anymore

Tiger tea, tiger gee, you my Tiger Rose
Gently roll me, honey, while I sing your song
On the bank where children play ring-a-levio
Come on and show me somethin' I don't know

Yeah on the bank where children play ring-a-levio
Come on show me somethin'
Come on show me somethin'
Come on and show me somethin' I don't know
