I was a drifter in a rock 'n' roll safari
Took a fancy to an ape in malawi
Who kissed my head and my eyes went all starry
And so I ran and was screaming "where the hell are we ? "
He begged : "don't go, don't cry !"
There was a tiger I fought for the glory
The bloody battle was fierce and was gawry
Was like a scene from a kipling story
He sucked my blood like he's eating tandoori
He yelled: "don't go, don't cry !"
I took a plane and was greeted in england
By many people and my spine started tingling
They stole my time and they all started mingling
I ran so hard that my feet started stinging
They screamed: "don't go, don't cry !"
Don't Go, Don't Cry Lyrics
