Beatles songs, The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill

The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill

(John Lennon – John Lennon and Paul McCartney)

Albums in which the song is present

   1968 - The Beatles (White Album)

JOHN 1980: 'Oh, that was written about a guy in Maharishi's meditation camp who took a short break to go shoot a few poor tigers, and then come back to commune with God.
There used to be a character called Jungle Jim, and I combined him with Buffalo Bill.
It's a sort of teenage social comment song, and a bit of a joke.
Yoko's on that one, I believe.'

PAUL circa-1994: 'I remember John singing 'Bungalow Bill' in Rishikesh.
This is another of his great songs and it's one of my favorites to this day because it stands for alot of what I stand for now.
'Did you really have to shoot that tiger' is its message.
'Aren't you a big guy? Aren't you a brave man?' I think John put it very well.'

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

He went out tiger hunting with his elephant and gun
In case of accidents he always took his mom
He's the all American bullet-headed Saxon mother's son
All the children sing

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

Deep in the jungle where the mighty tiger lies
Bill and his elephants were taken by surprise
So Captain Marvel zapped in right between the eyes, zap!
All the children sing

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

The children asked him if to kill was not a sin
"Not when he looked so fierce", his mummy butted in
If looks could kill it would have been us instead of him
All the children sing

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

Oh ho!

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

[Eh up!]
