Riki Tiki Tavi

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


Better get into what you gotta get into
Better get into it now, no slacking, please
United Nations ain't really united
And the organisations ain't really organised

Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone
Won't be coming around for to kill your snakes no more, my love
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone

Everybody who read the Jungle Book a-know that Riki Tiki Tavi's a mongoose who kills snakes. Well, when I was a young man I was led to believe there were organisations to kill my snakes for me: i.e. the church; i.e. the government; i.e. the school. But when I got a little older I learned I had to kill them myself. I said:

Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone
Won't be coming around for to kill your snakes no more, my love
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone

People walking around, they don't know what they're doing
They been lost so long they don't know what they're looking for
Well, I know what I'm a looking for but I just can't find it
I guess I gotta look inside of myself some more

Oh, oh, oh, inside of myself some more
Come on, now (baby)
Oh, oh, oh, inside of myself some more (baby)

Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone
Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose is gone (last time)

I saw you today
On a number twelve bus
You were going my way (going)
My way

Riki Tiki Tavi (Alternate Version)

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


Oh, it's a nice this one, I meant, I was changing it from uh, finger to a plectrum.

Well, better get into what you gotta get into
And you better get into it now, no slacking, please
For the United Nations ain't really united
And the organisations ain't really organised

'Cos your Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose at your door no more, no more
Oh, your Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose at your door
It won't be coming around for to kill your snakes no more my love
Oh, your Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose at your door no more

Everybody who saw the Jungle Book know that Riki Tiki Tavi's a mongoose who kills snakes. Ah, when I was a young man I thought there were organisations to kill my snakes for me, I was told: i.e. the church; i.e. the government; i.e. the school. But as I got a little older I learned to kill my snakes myself.

Well, the people walking around, they don't know what they're doing
They been lost so long they don't know what they're looking for
Well, I know what I'm a-looking for but I just can't find it
Well, I gotta, I guess I gotta look inside myself some more
Oh, no more

Oh, Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose at your door no more, no more, no more
Here come your Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose at your door no more
Oh, won't be coming around for to kill your snakes no more, my love
Oh, your Riki Tiki Tavi mongoose at your door no more

Well, the people walking around, they're taking and they're dropping the drip, drip
Well, they don't know what they're doing to their pretty nerve system
Well, I've taken every drug there is to take and I know
That the natural high is the best high in the world
Natural high, best high in the world
Oh, no more, no, no more, no more, no more, no more

Laboratory [...] forgot your third eye
Laboratory [...] forgot your third eye

Well, natural high is the best high in the world, you know
Oh, natural high, best high in the world

Some tea get here. Do we got any tea? Figure out some hot water somewhere.
