Tigress, give them a little bit of your love

The Jungle

You welcome me to the jungle

You welcome me to the jungle With your splayed loin cloth

You welcome me to the jungle With your splayed loin cloth OR

You welcome me to the jungle With your splayed loin cloth OR With the lack of it

A passerby swinging

A passerby swinging Like a pendulum

A passerby swinging Like a pendulum Killing time

A passerby swinging Like a pendulum Killing time Killing

A killer

A killer Between the two of us,

A killer Between the two of us, Who was it?

Was it you with the gun at hand?

Was it you with the gun at hand? Was it me with the KILLER-good looks?

Mother has never seen an unattractive tiger

Mother has never seen an unattractive tiger Father has never seen a cowardly one

I roar and terrorize

The stripes on my body

The stripes on my body Displaying every battle I've won

Claws that spread like wildfire

Fire

Fire The color of my skin

Fire The color of my skin The color of my eyes

Both enchanting

Both enchanting Both a trap

A trap

A trap for new prey

A trap for new prey Who just so happened

A trap for new prey Who just so happened To be you

A new toy to play with

A new toy to play with Up until there's nothing left

Oh

Oh, they never told you

Oh, they never told you, did they?

I kill for fun

I kill for fun, But I kill slowly

A scratch

A scratch, A claw

A scratch, A claw, A bite

Take back what you said!

You only called me beautiful because you wanted my fur!

What were your plans after that?

To leave me to rot?

I don't think so

I am not

I am not A display

I am not A display, A trophy

I am not A display, A trophy, A reward

Haunted

Haunted is the hunted hunter

Trained to kill

Trained to kill, But too slow a train

POUNCE!

Almost killed

Almost killed, But not quite yet

You have a story to tell

You have a story to tell Go!

You have a story to tell Go! Warn them

You have a story to tell Go! Warn them of the DEATH

You have a story to tell Go! Warn them of the DEATH hidden in BEAUTY

I fight my own battles!

Yes, welcome to my kingdom.
