"Tiger Of Sabrod" as written by and Karsten Brill Falk Maria Schlegel....
At night in the forrest of Sabrod
A tiger in search of his prey
I wonder will we be alive by the dawning of day?

Predator of godly creation
In hunger he stops at no child
Obsessed by the fever to follow the call of the wild

Take this life
And you're safe
Say goodbye for today

It's the tiger of Sabrod
And he's fighting from the heart
Will you return?

Tiger of Sabrod
Oh - Tiger of Sabrod

The eyes of the tiger are closed now
And lifeless he lies in the mud
Don't trust in your triumoh and glory
Revenge will bring blood

At night he will raise from the dead ones
And then he will search you all night and day
The wolf will still live on tomorrow - Survivors will pay!

Take this life
And you're safe
Say goodbye for today

It's the tiger of Sabrod
And he's fighting from the heart
Will you return?

Tiger of Sabrod
Oh - Tiger of Sabrod

    General CommentThis song is inspired by a local story from a German village called "Sabrodt" (in German, the name of the story is "Tiger von Sabrodt").

    Basically, in 1904, the last German wolf was shot in Sabrodt. The wolf in question was a very large one (1.60 meters length, 80 cm withers and a live weight of 41 kg). It was apparently very agile, able to evade capture from its hunters 18 times, until finally being killed, and the contractors receiving 100 marks as head money. The wolf was being hunted because it attacked cattle and supposedly angered and/or scared the population. After its death, the wolf was put on display and attracted more than 500 visitors.

    The term "Tiger" comes from the fact that at least one person assumed the wolf was a tiger who escaped a circus, given how long it had been since the last wolf sighting.

    Lyric CorrectionAlso, these are the correct lyrics:


    At night in the forest of Sabrod
    A tiger in search of his prey
    I wonder will we be alive by the dawning of day?

    Predator of godly creation
    In hunger he stops at no child
    Possessed by the fever to follow the call of the wild

    Take this life
    When you say,
    Say goodbye for today

    It's a tiger of Sabrod
    And he's fighting from the heart
    Will you return?

    Tiger of Sabrod
    Oh - Tiger of Sabrod

    The eyes of the tiger are close now
    And lifeless he lies in the mud
    Don't trust in your triumph and glory
    Revenge will bring blood

    At night he will rise from the dead ones
    And then he will search you all night and day
    The wolf will still live on tomorrow - Survivors will pay!

    Take this life
    When you say,
    Say goodbye for today

    It's a tiger of Sabrod
    And he's fighting from the heart
    Will you return?

    Tiger of Sabrod
    Oh - Tiger of Sabrod
