Well, you call your mama Tiger
And we all know you ain't lying
And your boyfriend's name is Eagle
And he lives up in the sky - watch out
Watch out the tiger don't go claw the eagle's eye
But let the eagle take the tiger by surprise
Scratch out her eyes

So make a stand for your man, honey
Try to can the can
Put your man in the can, honey
Get him while you can
Can the can, can the can
If you can, well, can the can

Well, your sister's got the feline touch, she touches up your mind
And your eagle lover likes his little bit of evil loving all the time
Don't let the cat get into the eagle's nest at night
Because the eagle could say 'yes' without a fight
Scratch out her eyes

So make a stand for your man, honey
Try to can the can
Put your man in the can, honey
Get him while you can
Can the can, can the can
If you can, well, can the can

Ooh, can the can - can the can, honey
Ooh, can the can - can the can, honey
Uh-huh, can the can - can the can, honey
Ooh, can the can - can the can, honey
Ooh, can the can - can the can, honey
Oh, can the can - can the can, honey
Ah, honey, honey, honey, honey, honey

Make a stand for your man, honey, try to can the can
Put your man in the can, honey, get him while you can
Can the can, can the can, if you can, wow!
