What a shock it was so surprising
You looked so small and frail
I didn't know what to do
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail

People said that you must be joking
You let emotions run away with you
I realized a little too late
I bit off more than I could chew

I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail

Sometimes you grip it right
And sometimes you fail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail

I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail

At times life can be so enlightening
But it can turn on you
Lately it gets so complicated… I
I don't know what the tiger will do

I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail

Sometimes you grip it right
And sometimes you fail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail

I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail

Sometimes you grip it right
And sometimes you fail
I grabbed the Tiger By The Tail
