Irving Fine (1914 - 23 agosto 1962): Tigeroo per voce e pianoforte, da Childhood Fables for Grownups su testi di Gertrude Norman (1955). William Parker, baritono; Dalton Baldwin, pianoforte.
There once was a Tiger named Tigeroo,
The hungriest tiger in the zoo:
All day long he liked to eat
Not cake, not cookies, but only meat.
The keeper said, «Now, Tigeroo,
You eat too much, you know you do!
If you eat any more and you get sick,
I’ll call the tiger doctor quick!»
«I’ll eat all I like», said Tigeroo,
«I’m the hungriest tiger in the zoo.
You tell that doctor, I said POOH!
If he comes in my cage, I’ll eat him too!»
