In this explanation he tells the background story of this song and continues it past the end of the song to include the story of how the Maitai people never kill a tiger. This is because when they crossed the river, the tiger took them across and after that it was sleeping.

To this day Maitai people will not kill a tiger and if one is killed they hold a funeral service for it.
