The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill ()
Author: John Lennon; Lead vocal: John Lennon

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 take 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 Marvel zapped in 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 mother 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?
