We think Twitter user @Spanglia summed it up best when she tweeted:
Yes, if there's one thing Twitter loves more than a home-grown drama - such as, say, a lion being on the loose in Essex - it's a silly hashtag game. And on Bank Holiday Monday, that hashtag game is #lionsongs. Songs about lions.
Well, song titles that could be easily adapted to sound like they're about lions. Especially, specifically, lions on the loose. But hey: let's look at some of the silliest and funniest before we totally kill the comedy, shall we? Take it away, Twitter!*
*No seriously, please take it away. That thing is a man-eating danger to anyone in its path. Still, we should probably be addressing this request to the police, really, and not Twitter.
