"Tiger by the Tail" as written by and Rick Springfield....
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
