TheMightyHunters
"The Mighty Hunters" is a deleted song from the 1967 Disney film, The Jungle Book written by Terry Gilkyson. It featured Shere Khan the tiger and Buldeo the hunter, a character cut from the film. Like the songs by Gilkyson, save for "The Bare Necessities", this song was cut as Walt Disney felt it was too dark.

Lyrics

Shere Khan: It isn't fair to hate me
When you know me very slightly
When you know me better
Then you can judge me rightly
And all who know me very well
Hate me, hate me, hate me more than tongue
Can tell

Oh, I'm Shere Khan, who fights alone
A demon I resemble
I have no friends to call my own
I make the jungle tremble
I'm cruel as the midday sun
All clad in black and yellow
And all who see me turn and run
Though I'm a handsome fellow

Buldeo: Buldeo is my name of fame
I'm expert with the weapon
Shere Khan's the game I mean to tame
His carcass I shall step on
I'll meet my victim eye-to-eye
He knows just how I hate him
He'll have no time to say goodbye
For I'll exterminate him.

Shere Khan: It isn't fair to hate me
When you know me very slightly
When you know me better
Then you can judge me rightly
And all who know me very well
Hate me, hate me, hate me more than tongue
Can tell

Buldeo seeks to take my life
How does he dare, I wonder
Unless he wants a widowed wife
As I tear him asunder
My fangs are sharp, my heart is cold
There's no time for complaining
His friends and family should be told
There won't be much remaining

Buldeo: As hunter, I'm invincible
I always get my quarry
I never, as a principle
Let myself feel sorry
With elephant and antelope
My name is dreaded still
Shere Khan can only dare to hope for time
To make his will

Shere Khan: It isn't fair to hate me
When you know me very slightly
When you know me better
Then you can judge me rightly
And all who know me very well
Hate me
Buldeo: Hate him
Shere Khan: Hate me
Buldeo: Hate him
Shere Khan: Hate me
Shere Khan & Buldeo: ...more than tongue
Can tell
