The Lyrics

Early this week a man named Lucas Tomas jumped into the lions' cage at the Buenes Aires zoo, claiming voices from God instructed him to do so. He was slightly mauled by Quique, a full grown male lion, before zoo personel were able to rescue him.(I know the Tokens version of this song is the one usually parodied, but Robert John's 1972 hit is the one I (Merry) am most familiar with...)
(He did entré, sí, he did entré the lion's den today
He did entré, sí, he did entré the lion's den today
A yummy guy! A whim today, he's dim today
A whim today, he's dim today, a whim today, he's dim today
A yummy guy! A whim today, he's dim today
A whim today, he's dim today, a whim today, he's dim today)

Such a bungle, they're gonna rumble, he's lion feast tonight
He's a dumbbell, a diet humble, he's lion feast tonight

Yum! Yum!
Weeeeeeeee! See Quique get Argentine soufflé!
(A whim today, looks grim today, a whim today, looks grim today)
(A whim today, looks grim today, a whim today, looks grim today)
Weeeeeeeee! See Quique get Argentine soufflé
(A whim today, he's din today, a whim today, he's din today)
(A whim today, he's din today, a whim today, he's din today)

Geared for pillage, capriceful killage, he's lion eats tonight
It's a thrillage, mild plasma spillage, he's lion eats tonight

Yum! Yum!
Weeeeeeeee! Feed Quique a-vitamin-array
(A whim today, be skinned today, a whim today, be skinned today)
(A whim today, be skinned today, a whim today, be skinned today)
Weeeeeeeee! Feed Quique a-vitamin-array
(A whim today, less limb today, a whim today, less limb today)
(A whim today, less limb today, a whim today, less limb today)

Voice he's hearing made Lucas daring, he's lion treats tonight
Now he's dwelling in Sanitarium to curb his little plight

Yum! Yum!
He's feed oh no! He's feed oh no! Had we a showy day!
(A whim today, we grin away, a whim today, we grin away)
(A whim today, we grin away, a whim today, we grin away)
Qui-i-i-que gets Argentine gourmet
(A whim today, he's din today, a whim today, he's din today)
(A whim today, he's din today, a whim today, he's din today)
He did entré, sí, he did entré the lion's den today
He did entré, sí, he did entré the lion's den today

Ouch sounds painful. My wife once put her hand in a bears mouth. That same bear later mauled his keeper!!

This is good and I ain't lion. I saw this on the news. That guy was extremely fortunate not to be part of a bigger hair ball later in the day. Well done.

Why do you think it is that when a person does something particularly stupid like this, it's always voices "from God" - WTF would any kind of God (except maybe Loki) want a man to stick their arm into a lion's mouth?
The parody traffic police - January 16, 2004 - Report this comment
I'm going to have to give you s point on your poetic license (if you get enough it gets revoked) for trying to use spanish but making a significant grammatical error. First of all, entre with an accent over the is the simple past tense for "to enter" but it is the first person and you wanted the third person. Third person is entro with an accent on the o. However, if you want to say "he did enter" in spanish it would be "el has entrado". whichg wouldn't fit the pacing at all. Which is why you must exercise extreme caution while driving along the parody superhighway. Especially since you are in enough trouble already for your abuse of apostrophes.

Oh yeah! That makes me laugh! The above comment that is. Before you start giving people Spanish lessons, learning how to spell a basic English word such as "which" would add a lot more substance to your argument. It's the Lion Cage for you!

the poor typing skills of the parody police does not excuse a failed attempt at bilingualism especially when the mistake is repeated seven times. And do you hobbits actually believe your poetic license can be revoked? if so i'll have to send the gullibility police after you.

I saw this idiot on tv. Amazing he wasn't really hurt. I was pulling for the lion.
Meriadoc - January 17, 2004 - Report this comment
Now, now, Mr. Eth... I mean Mr. Policeman, I am NOT bilingual, but I do know that 'entré' is not the correct past tense. I was trying for rhyme and comedic effect, not accuracy.... in fact, I almost scrapped it in favor of "He's an entree, sí, he's an entree in lion den tonight." Now, where did I stash those valium...? :-P
Ethan - January 17, 2004 - Report this comment
but you actually could have both accurate spanish and good pacing... alli el fue rhymes almost exactly with awimoweh and it means "he went there"

Great job; I actually saw the Tokens about 7 years ago; I don't think they had any other hits cause they did like a fifteen minute version of this.
