This song is performed by The Limeliters and appears on the album Through Children's Eyes (1962).
There once was a tiger, tiny little tiger, playin' with his tiger toys
But his nurse-maid made him so afraid, he didn't dare make a noise
What happened to the tiger, tiny little tiger, who never learned to roar?
He's just a mat, stretched out flat on somebody's bedroom floor.
What we're sayin' is...

Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack
Even little tigers lose their knack
When somebody twice their size
Can't see the world through children's eyes.

There once was a bunny, fluffy little bunny, through the piney woods he'd roam
But his mother cried, "Come back inside! A bunny belongs at home!"
What happened to the bunny, fluffy little bunny, who never learned to hop?
Because the bunny couldn't hop, he hangs in a butcher shop.
What we're sayin' is...

Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack
Even little bunnieslose their knack
When somebody twice their size
Can't see the world through children's eyes.

There once was a beagle, happy little beagle, following his tail around
But his father said, "Go straight to bed, and don't make a single sound!"
What happened to the beagle, happy little beagle, who never learned to bay?
Some burglars came, and to his shame he turned tail and ran away.
What we're sayin' is...

Hey, Jimmie, Joe, John, Jim, Jack
Even little beagles lose their knack
When somebody twice their size
Can't see the world through children's eyes.

Don't do this.
Don't do that.
You might as well just be a statue.
That's how children lose their spark.
But if grown-ups would take part in things that children have their heart in
They'd never end up hiding in the dark

What we're sayin is...
Hey, Jimmy, Jack, John, Jim, Joe
When you have your own kids let them know
Even though you're twice their size
You see the world through children's eyes.
