Song Lyric Sunday 8th May

Jim is our host, and Paula Light has suggested a theme of Socks, Shoes, Boots, Feet.
I initially though of These Boots Are Made For Walking, then Crocodile Shoes (which I’d used before) so digging back into the archives of my youth and the days of discos,
found this! And yes, we really did use to dance like that…….. oh the memories!!

Tiger Feet
is a popular song by the English glam rock band Mud, released in January 1974. Written and produced by the songwriting team of Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn, it was the first of three number No. 1 singles for the band in the UK Singles Chart followed later that year by “Oh Boy!” and “Lonely This Christmas”.

The band appeared on Top of the Pops wearing tiger slippers.

Co-writer and producer Mike Chapman credited bassist Ray Stiles with a particularly memorable bass lick which helped fuel the success of the record.

Tiger Feet Lyrics (courtesy

All night long you’ve been lookin’ at me
Well you know you’re the dance hall cutie that you love to be
Oh well now you’ve been layin’ it down
You got your
Hips swingin’ out of bounds
And I like the way you do what you’re doin’ to me

Well that’s right
That’s right
That’s right
That’s right

I really love your tiger light
And that’s neat
That’s neat
That’s neat
That’s neat

I really love your tiger feet

I really love your tiger feet

Your tiger feet
Your tiger feet
Your tiger feet

Well alright

Well flash your warning lights just as long as you like

I know you’re achin’ to be makin’ me tonight

I got a feeling in my knees
A feeling only you can please

And there ain’t no way I’m gonna let you out of my sight – alright

You’ve been layin’ it down
You got your hips swingin’ out of bound
And I like the way you do you’re doin’ to me

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I don’t remember this song but I know what you mean about “getting puffed”. LOL!

  5. Great choice! I couldn’t stay seated for this one. [I’m prone to spontaneously dance and this was irresistible!]
