Lyrics to LSU Songs

LSU Tiger Rag

Long ago, way down in the jungle
Someone got an inspiration for a tune,
And that jingle brought from the jungle
Became famous mighty soon.
Thrills and chills it sends thru you!
Hot! so hot, it burns you too!
Tho' it's just the growl of the tiger
It was written in a syncopated way,
More and more they howl for the 'Tiger'
Ev'ry where you go today
They're shoutin'
Where's that Tiger! Where's that Tiger!
Where's that Tiger! Where's that Tiger!
Hold that Tiger! Hold that Tiger!

Hold that Tiger!

The Original Dixieland Jazz Band made Tiger Rag popular over 90 years ago. Several schools that have a tiger mascot have used portions of this song., claim a tiger as a mascot.

LSU fans are most familiar with the "Hold that Tiger" part of the song (which musically consists of one pitch played three times followed by a second pitch played once - see the video).

The band plays the Hold that Tiger portion of the song when the team scores a touchdown.  which concludes with a "T-I-G-E-R-S" cheer from the crowd.
