Somewhere in the fashion Jungle
A dandy lion poses
Wearing the finest finery
You’ll find on any felinery
Or under fashionistas’ noses

All about the jungle he seeks
The lionesses in the boutiques
In their well-dressed little jungle cliques
To show off his lean physique
Dressed in clothes exceedingly chic

I would be lyin’
If I said
There was a prouder lion

When he wanders around the Savannah with pride
All the pretty animals cling to his side
But to the ugly ones he’s exceedingly snide
Even when dressed in the hides
Of their relatives who have recently died

But one day wearing black and white
And acting like the Queen of Sheba
He didn’t know he was being spied on
By some hungry and unfashionable lions
Who thought he was a zebra

Now that dandy lion is dandy no more
And is currently being worn
By the jungle floor.
