"Tiger Bomb" as written by and Christopher Weldon Ballew....
Ooo, she plays the drums like a queen
Got the prettiest high-hat cymbal I've ever seen
I could fix a broken bass drum beater
If I had the courage to go up to her and meet her
She gives off sucha soothing vapour
Cooling effect she uses to smooth her temper
Wish I had all she ever needed to give her
Every time I see her I start to shiver
She wraps it up tight and she holds it in
Keeps a funny joke tucked inside her grin
Maybe its behind her wild eyes
Now I know why
I know that there's fuses inside tiger bomb
She is one target that is clearly out of sight
Tiger bomb
I know she's got something, ow!

Mama said that she was a big zero
She proved her mumma wrong at the big rock show
She kicked out a beat that made are feet get busy
A cloud of tom toms that made us all feel dizzy
Now its four in the morning and the show is done
Now I gotta be the strong one
Don't you know its going to hurt me to
Going the opposite direction as you

I know that there's fuses inside tiger bomb
She is one target that clearly out of sight, tiger bomb
I can't X-ray that shell to read her mind tiger bomb

I had to drop my tiger bomb
I had to drop my tiger bomb
I had to drop my tiger bomb

    General CommentUnlike most Presidents of the USA songs - which are just simple meanings with nothing too deep with nothing to relate to,(which still absolutly rock) I can really relate to this song, my mum doesn't think im a good drummer and she doesn't want me to spend much on them because I haven't had lesssons, though I'm the best in my year and I'm in love with drums - and I just want to prove to her that I'm good 'at the big rock show' - whenever that is. I was just playing drums to this song and it just made me understand how I relate to it so much. It is truly a beautiful sing, i'm not sure exactly what a tiger bomb is? Anybody care to enlighten me?

    General CommentSometime after hearing this song, my friend showed me a herbal analgesic called Tiger Balm. This may be a reference to that; i'm inclined to think so because of the "soothing vapor" line.

    My InterpretationI think I get it.

    He falls for the drummer of a band, perhaps for her adventurousness or open-mindedness, plus she isn't bad on the eyes. He ends up snagging her: Maybe it's behind her wild eyes/Now I know why-y-y. But then he finds out that she wants to be independent and is smart (in some way) and he wants the best for her, he is going the "opposite direction." Tiger Bomb is a sorta pet name, maybe a stage name. All I could find on Tiger Bomb is that it is a modified power bomb, a wrestling move.
