WILD MAN

They call you an animal
The Kangchenjumga demon
Wild man
Metoh-kangmi

Lying in my tent
I can hear your cry
Echoing round the mountainside
You sound lonely

Chorus:
While crossing the Lhakpa La
Something jumped down from the rocks
In the remote Garo hills by Dipu Marak
We found footprints in the snow

The schoolmaster of Darjeeling said
He saw you by the Tengboche monastery
You were playing in the snow
You were banging on the doors
You climbed up on the roof
Roof of the world
You were pulling up the rhododendrons
Loping down the mountain

They want to know you
They will hunt you down
Then they will kill you
Run away, run away
Run away

Chorus:
While crossing the Lhakpa La
Something jumped down from the rocks
In the remote Garo hills by Dipu Marak
We found footprints in the snow

We found your footprints in the snow
We brushed them all away

From the Sherpas of Annapurna
To the Rinpoche of Qinghai
Shepherds from Mount Kailash to Himachal Pradesh
Found footprints in the snow

You're not a Langur monkey
Nor a big brown bear
You're the wild man

They say they saw you drown
Near the Rongbuk glacier
They wanna hunt you down
You're not an animal
The lamas say
You're not an animal
