Like a tiger ??
What's going on London?
This is a song about the ?
It's in a minor key and it's called

With a ??
It won't let you back
I just can't get the same
Queen's toilet to flush

Beck went on a solo tour of Europe in the spring of 2003. The shows included a lot of talking, and were very loose. He often improvised songs about the city he was in, and this was about London and playing at the legendary Royal Albert Hall.
