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 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
