Beatles, The - The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill Lyrics




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 took 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, zap!
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 mummy 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?

Oh ho!

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?
Hey, Bungalow Bill
What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

[Eh up!]

Beatles, The The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill Comments
  1. Keith Sanderson

    I liked the early years the best but when The Beatles did New material on The White Album it was new and different from their earlier days the music was fun to listen too The Beatles changed but the fan bass stayed the same fans like me still bought the albums The Beatles would always write new songs John and Paul were such brilliant song writers even after the group broke up the music lived on and will live on forever The Beatles left behind more great music than any group could process in a lifetime it was truly great I was sad after John was murdered I think if John was still with us today he may have written again with Paul McCartney.

  4. Cody Paliacco

    At the very end, if you listen to everything, you may here someone shouting HEY DON'T.

  5. MFPhoto1

    Hearing John Lennon sing this is sort of. . . . disturbing.

    The M.A.

    How so? 🤔

    MFPhoto1

    @The M.A. Shooting guns, even if it is a small boy doing pretend shooting. Think of how Lennon died. Happiness is a Warm Gun is disturbing as well.

  6. Maura M

    i was just casually sleeping, then all of a sudden i was awaken by
    "hEEEY BUNGALOW BILL"

  7. Uxío V

    Beatles Forever

  8. Quinton Moore

    Creative

  9. Lj Hendrickson

    Does anybody hear thw STUPID Yoko?!?? WtF?

  10. The M.A.

    I find it funny how the people that normally criticize Yoko Ono praised her inclusion in this song. 😂

  11. JBags72

    The White Album...my favorite of all. Hearing Yoko on this track brings on intense nausea for me. She was like a piece of cork floating in the finest wine."and on the 7th day He created the Beatles"

  12. gotohoward

    The White Album as John has said is their best album musically as in developed sound.

  13. gotohoward

    Maureen Starr is also a background singer in this one. After the Beatles were done, so were Ringo and Mo.

  14. John Clark

    Me, Being A Comic Book Fan, Love This Song, With John's Mention Of 'Captain Marvel' In This Song! So Cool!😳😲😱🤔🙄😊😀😁😂🤓😍😎

  15. cuss word sayer

    Buffalo bill

  16. IFilmAlways

    Good Song but Rocky Raccoon would beat his ass!

  17. Jason Van Buskirk

    Anyone know who played the opening acoustic arpeggio, or whatever it's called? I don't honestly think any of the FAB 4 could play it; I think this even transcends George's skill, though I could be wrong.

  18. eggnbaconful

    There's a southern Ontario (Canada) band called "The liverpool Sessions" that does this album in its entirety and boy do they nail it !!!

  19. Johnny H.

    All time favorite 💯👉☝️🇺🇸😬👈🌻🌼😳🙊🙈🤐🍻🌻🤙✌️

  20. findingnino

    I think its the best.

  21. Jeffrey Richardson

    williams coffee cup
    mcdonalds rolls up big muck
    michael douglas yuck

  22. Slambo TV

    The verse sounds like I’m So Tired

  23. C. S. McLeod

    Great seque into While My Guitar Gently Weeps

  24. Abel Rodriguez

    Am I going crazy? I could have sworn this song was always Buffalo Bill.

  25. L&R II

    So... nobody's going to mention Captain Marvel?

    Thisis Theway

    He's referring to what we now know as Shazam!
    Back then, DC had the rights to the name,
    And He was an incredibly Popular comic book character at the time.
    Also,
    Lennon just being sarcastic lol

  26. Gumbo Clay

    Yes I would love an ale, thanks John.

  27. Swag Slap

    I love this song af

  28. tomes2

    I thought they were asking me how people I’ve killed.




    HaHa silly I always say then I chomp em into bits

  29. //rosecorpse//

    okay but like is it just me or does P!ATD's Do You Know What I'm Seeing? have a similar melody

  30. DragonGirl DIYs

    “So Captain Marvel zapped right between the eyes”

    Me: *hmm*

    balls vlogs

    That part came on right when I wad reading this lmao

  31. Maiden45 Iron39

    In this song, singing ringo star?

  32. 902496

    All de children sing:

  33. Charlize Ocon

    All the children sing

  34. Jamie Austria

    Rocky Raccoon and Bungalow Bill is John and Paul's way competing with eachother

  35. EpoxyMuffin

    The kid voices in this sound like the children side-characters in the early seasons of The Simpsons.

  36. hisemberg

    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 took 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?
    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

    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

    Bungalow Bill?

  37. goodiesguy

    Someone needs to remove Yoko's voice, then this would be perfect!

    1Creative_Garbage1

    goodiesguy I actually don’t mind Yokos vocals in this.

  38. Natalia Williams

    my dad used to sing me this song which is kinda weird looking back on the lyrics but its still sweet lol

  39. Rosario Isabel Ramírez Fernandez Bojali

    I JUST LOVE IT

  40. The Division Bell

    Vivaldi would be proud.

  41. Stacy She wolf

    This is my favorite Beatles Album besides Abbey Road

  42. Bob Trump

    Yokos voice ruins the song. There, I said it.

  43. Tina Franklin

    This song is awesome except........for Yoko's screeching.

  44. Steph

    I always laugh when I hear this song. The whole thing is so absurd, especially the bits with Yoko, lmao 😂

  45. luis marcelo inostroza bidart

    I hear Ringo in the chorus.....

  46. RC Ravenclaw

    When you realize it’s not Buffalo Bill.

  47. Wayne D House

    You can’t kill kill

  48. Je Suis Ce Que Je Suis

    Just think, in an alternate reality somewhere they never broke up and never stopped making music together. I want to shift consciousness to that reality when I'm done here. That would be heaven.

  49. Manuel De Frutos Garcia

    I loved them like a myself meme,
    pero, ahorita........never more.
    Good bye Beatles. Consider it as a divorce, the mine. New life, new feeling. No problem.

  50. Ata Özkal

    The Real-Paul McCartney was killed in September, 1966!

  51. aminudin th siregar

    avant-garde

  52. Kenneth de Vries

    WHEN PEOPLE LISTEN TO THIS SONG THEY SHOULD DO WHAT I DO...PRETEND IT'S JOHN USING A FALSETTO VOICE & IT'S NOT YOKO. CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S 39 YRS SINCE JOHN DIED.

  53. David McAlpine Cunningham

    Hey, Captain Marvel! Everything old is new again with The Beatles.

  54. Buck Dog

    1:59 Whoever is singing that accidentally did it too elegantly.

  55. Gregory Reynolds

    Amazing musicians with extraordinary creativity, but I have migrated to Bach’s Matthew Passion and B-Minor Mass—more life changing.

  56. Alex Curioso

    This song is so undistinguished.

  57. DLD2 Music!

  58. Fabulous Killjoy

    Ok so a couple of months ago, I got a copy of the White Album on vinyl for my birthday, so, ya know, I played it. (I only played it up to this track because it was time for everyone to go to bed). A few weeks later, I played it in the car from my phone, and all of my baby sisters sang along (I thought it was adorable at first, but they wouldn’t stop singing it the whole week). I just went downstairs to put in my laundry, and I hear them screaming “HEEEEYYYY BUCKLE A BILL, BUCKLE A BILL”. I think it’s fascinating that, after all these years, these songs still have the power to stay in someone’s head after only one play.

  59. Сергей Афанасенко

    Чем-то в начале напоминает Боба Марли(No woman no cry)

  60. David Hargreaves

    Paul McCartney WAS the Beatles at this point...listen to his albums after this....McCartney WAS the Beatles after 1968.......

  61. Marshawn Lynch

    Captain Marvel? Brie Larson? She'd totally zap someone right between the eyes.

    Anyone know if that is really about The Captain Marvel?

    Ian1909

    It's about Shazam. He was Captain Marvel back then.

  62. pigGRAY

    The first Beatles song I've ever heard and loved.

  63. Matej Mateljak

    This song is so underrated

  64. out there

    His mommy batted him lol

  65. Johnny H.

    If ever there will be a big over turn of the government guess what my theme would be ☝️👉👌🏻💭🌸🤦🏽‍♂️👀👶🏼🍗🍻👉🎂😳❓😎🦋🌺💔🎉💨👀🤦🏽‍♂️💎🚀🎉💔🔫❓

  66. m r

    John Lennon beat his wife

  67. Satsuma Salanewt

    Nonsensical and goofy songs like this are still a staple part of the Beatles’ library, and I love them.

  68. Dolly Dream

    For the longest time I thought it was Buffalo Bill 😭😭 like still like to sing it like that when I watch silence of the lambs...

  69. honeylove3726 honey

    ugh, its YOKOED I had to skip that part.

  70. serbia strong

    *All the children sing*

  71. bunchlead

    This song was written by John Lennon about a sad, rich, middle aged, man he met in India. The guy while on so-called religious enlightenment pilgrimage , then ventured out and hunted/murdered a load of tigers. Then he came back an started acting all Godly again.

    Lennon, is basically calling him a mentally sick hypocrite in this song. He wasn't wrong either.

    galoon

    Agree. It's one thing to hunt and consume the animal you take. I have a problem with people like that man who hunt simply for the sake of killing.

  72. Bluegum

    come on people , how good is this considering there skill !

  73. Johnny H.

    Oh yeah 🍻⌚️💪👈😎😁😳💭🤐🍦🍬🍺🍸🍽🍪l🌚🌝🌜🌛🌞🌒🌴🌲🚭

  74. ricardo gabriel roque morales

    Shazam ⚡

  75. Bernie Sanders ass bitch

    1:15 captian marvel? What

  76. Maliceuk

    Such a great lp

  77. Luis Laguna

    ¡ THE CONTINUING STORY OF JOHN LENNON !

  78. Rose ooo

    Damn Yoko

  79. steve donahue

    ugh this fucking sucks

  80. Nulla Finibus

    0:00-0:08 yngwie malmsteen was probably inspired by this

  81. Mangokingemphasis

    This whole album is very haunting. All of it. And the whistles and the claps at the end give me chills every damn time

  82. Kelly Elliott

    No choice. Manson. Welcome to the bad. No thinking. No writing. This is therapy. Leave my legacy alone. You wouldn't last 5 minutes when I know what the computer application has for memories.

  83. Kelly Elliott

    I'm grateful for the peace and tears I had to suffer through. Brainwashing is never the equivalent of the gates to heaven. Listen to your heart. I'm sure I'm not the only one that suffered.

  84. CalfMan

    I can’t help but desperately want to know what people’s reaction was in 1968 to the very beginning of the song playing and then all of the sudden “HEYYY BUNGALOW BILL, WHAT DID YOU KILL-“

    Vonk

    Well the first time I listened to this song was on acid and I was amazed by how great of a song it is

  85. Bob Berch

    I hear RINGO on the chorus, above the rest

  86. ricardo gabriel roque morales

    Bill Is Shazam

  87. Schy Mark

    The voice of a century not just the decade

  88. Morg Morg

    Bungalow bill vs rocky raccoon

    D.B Cooper

    Bill wins

  89. Blyndblitz

    God the verses are so catchy and seductive and then the chorus is so carefree but feels ironic

    The Tom

    He wrote it like that on purpose to change the entire song in just a second and then back and then again

  90. DocWho 2002

    well turns out the backing vocals is by Yoko Ono and not a random kid xD

  91. Christopher Howells

    I still live in a bungalow at the weekends where I moved 25 years ago before I turned 9.

  92. Bongo Nutty

    A "Bungalow Bil" is an expression for a well-endowed dumb guy, i.e., a yard in front with nothing upstairs.

  93. InvisiSpy

    For some reason I've always loved the 'AYOP' at the end, then White My Guitar follows immediately after

  94. jerjamby

    masterpiece!

  95. Barbara Bergstrom

    Oh how I love this song ❤️

  96. Griytz Messes Up

    The first time I heard this I thought it was "Buffalo Bill", but it still make just as much scene as Bungalow Bill, which is absolutely NONE

    The Tom

    It makes sense, its about a tiger hunter
