Tiptoe through the Tulips Lyrics

Tiptoe through the window
By the window, that is where I'll be
Come tiptoe through the tulips with me

Oh, tiptoe from the garden
By the garden of the willow tree
And tiptoe through the tulips with me

Knee deep in flowers we'll...

    Well its alreddy well established that Tiny Tim used to be quite a wifebeating creep so, in respect to all the comments before me, I feel no further commentary is necessary...

    So I think that it is about a man who would look through two girls window.He called them tulips and one day lured them out to a tulip field nearby.Then he raped,murdered and buried their bodies in the tulip field.

    I think this song is about a man killing children and telling their spirits to go with him

    I think it's saying that when I'm dead I'm basically saying that he will kill the girl and take her with him cause it's about a married couple and the lyrics say tiptoe through the window by the window that's were I'll be come tip toe through the tulips with me

    I think the man is taking little girls through the tulips and into the window and raping them.

    Tiny Tim is so scary he has got a high voice and his song tiptoe through the tulips is in the horror film insidious.

    The Democrats, not calling the problem what it is, but just tiptoeing thru the tulips.

    This song was actually written in the 20's. My guess is that "tiptoe through the tulips" is a metaphor for sex.

    I think the song is about Tim who ask a girl out by the window. She then follows him to a Tulip field where they lay down in the Knee deeps Tulips where he politely ask her if it's okay that he kiss her

    I just think that the song is weird and yeah probably about courting someone even though his voice is uncomfortably high and the song is short as hell

    What I think this means is that he talks about him raping little girls in a secret way. His daughters name is tulip so the name for females girls is tulip because little girls remind him of his daughter so tulips aka little girls. So tiptoe through the tulips means he walks silently to the little girls bed. Through the tulips is him being inside of her so he rapes her. Come tiptoe to the window is where I'll be is saying that he come through the window that he's always where e the window is after he murders her and bury the body "knee-deep" he says TULIPS more then one little girl so he's done it multiple of times

    Yeah, you need to see what Tiny Tim looked like and you wouldnt be so sure that it was a man wanting to date a woman.

    I'm not sure if this is true but I heard it was about skipping through a graveyard... it may just be a love song but either way, it's fucking creepy.

    I find this song very creepy because I have heard its about a man creeping into a home to kill the women then he hides them in the tulip meadow and that's why he is 'knee deep' while digging the girls graves! :)
