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 Marval zapped him right between the eyes
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 mommy 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


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

Information

While the Beatles were on a course in Rishikesh with Maharishi, a woman named Nancy was there also. Her son, Richard Cooke III, visited her and they both went hunting. They killed a tiger and decided to tell Maharishi when guilt started to kick in. John wrote a song about this. The character is called "Bungalow Bill" as a mockery of "Buffalo Bill". All of the accomodation where they were staying was in the form of bungalows. This also contributed to the title.
