Five Tigers
Five little tigers went out to play
Through the jungle and far away
Mother Tiger said “GRRrr”
Four little tigers came running back.

Four little tigers went out to play…
Three little tigers went out to play…
Two little tigers went out to play…
One little tiger went out to play…

Tigers and Lions
(Sung To: "London Bridge")
Lions and tigers come out to play, out to play, out to play,
Lions and tigers come out to play, Tigers and lions
Lions stand up and tigers sit down, tigers sit down, tigers sit down,
Lions stand up and tigers sit down Lions and tigers!
Tigers all walk and lions jog, Tigers all walk and lions jog
Tigers all walk and lions jog, Lions and tigers
Lions twist and tigers hop, Lions twist and tigers hop
Lions twist and tigers hop, Lions and tigers
