The Lyrics

Thanks to Alvin Rhodes for reminding me of this obscure Stones tune. Poetic license: it was actually a tiger.
Primped and pompadoured, once Vegas kings,
Thought cats tame but learned power of those things.
Dancing lion of immense size,
Dancing lion had hungry eyes,
Teller and Penn not his prize. . .
Roy-filleted dancing lion.

Crunch-voicebox, chew-voicebox, teethe-voicebox, score-voicebox bite.
Dancing lion was in rare form that night.
Dancing lion taught by these guys,
Dancing lion had a surprise,
Felled Roy, who could gasp these cries:
"Go away, dancing lion!
Go away, dancing lion!"

Kind of old were they to play a game
With a dancing lion not quite tame,
Guess they're finished now, this wild-beast pair;
Should have done from-hat-hare trick.

Skink 'r quail 'r vole 'r snail are fine;
Chick, cat, boar, rat, pooch will not slaughter, dine.
Dancing lion show wasn't nice,
Dancing lion lucked out; advice
Yelled from Roy, who needed splice:
"No, don't slay dancing lion!"

There's no girls for these boys, 'cause they're gay;
These two dandies taught lions a jeté.
Dancing lions are crafty-wise,
Dancing lions you can't apprise,
That it's not nice to incise
Throats that say: "Dance, you lion!"
Towed away, champing lion.
