Riki Tiki Tavi" takes Kipling's Indian setting and riffs it off of a reggae beat. Brazilian guitarist Carlos Jobim inspired the title of "Joe Bean's Theme", which alternates between a bossa nova rhythm and psychedelic pop melodies . For the 1992 Donovan tribute album Island of Circles, the band When People Were Shorter and Lived Near the Water performed "Riki Tiki Tavi" and Black Sox covered "Changes"
Riki Tiki Tavi is the name of the mongoose in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book who protects a family against a giant cobra. In this, one of Donovan's last songs to make the charts, the character is seen as a victim of society. Donovan recorded this with the Open Road band, which was an acoustic band that he traveled with throughout 1970. There is another version of the song on the Troubadour boxed set that contains drug references. More songs inspired by books.

Redirected from Riki Tiki Tavi). Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" is a short story in the 1894 anthology The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling about the adventures of a valiant young mongoose. The story has often been anthologized, and has been published more than once as a short book in its own right. The story follows the experiences of a mongoose named Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (for his chattering vocalizations) after he is adopted into a British family residing in India, as a pet and as protection against cobras.
