lyrics

i was born a tiger
i was transformed into a human
by a team of tiger scientists
who were laughing in the face of god
they were laughing in the face of god

its tough to be a tiger
its tough to be a tiger
who looks just like a human
who looks just like a human

i learn how to be a human
from a team of human-scientists
who laugh in my face at every clumsy mistake
that i make trying to act like a human

they told me boy you’re a long way from tiger-land
fire and machines are your friends now
boy forget the etiquette of tiger-land
now you got to tell 1000 lies to the people you love
just to keep their hearts at ease

i miss running through the jungle with my friends
i wanna jump on that pigeon and then let him go
so i can jump on him again

its tough to be a human
its tough to be a human
when on the inside you are a tiger
when on the inside you are a tiger
