Tight Fit is a 1982 album by the British pop group Tight Fit.

The album featured the No.1 single "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" as well as the top five hit "Fantasy Island". Tracks "Secret Heart" and "I'm Undecided" were released as singles also, but achieved less success.[1] The album itself peaked at a low 87.[2] Soon after the album's release, two of the members, Julie Harris and Denise Gyngell departed the group. The album was produced by Tim Friese-Greene and released on the fledgling Jive Record label.

In 1986, Samantha Fox recorded the song "Baby I'm Lost for Words" for her debut album (which was released on the same label).

This album was re-released later on the Music for Pleasure label as The Lion Sleeps Tonight with an added track, "High Wire" (a 1983 B-side).[3]
