Tiger Blood by Dan Johnson

Thinking back a lot of people never understood

How I could live the way I do, be so bad and be so good.

The answer’s pretty simple, no great mystery from above.

I’m not an angel or demon or superhuman being,

Nope, I’ve got tiger blood!

 

Tiger blood…tiger blood…boiling in my veins like fire and lightning from above.

Tiger blood…tiger blood…can’t slow down, baby not right now. Only got one life to love.

 

They all knew something was wrong from the moment I arrived.

Nurses said I had a funny color, thought I was oxygen deprived.

But that was just my special chemistry, acclimating to the air outside.

Then I hit the road Jack, ain’t never looked back, living life ELECTRIFIED!

 

Tiger blood…tiger blood…boiling in my veins like fire and lightning from above.

Tiger blood…tiger blood…can’t slow down, baby not right now. Only got one life to love.

 

Woman, I see that twinkle in your eye, and I understand.

You’re wondering what it’d be like to love a tiger-blooded man.

Well I don’t know if you’ve got what it takes or just how long you’d last.

But I’m the ride of your life, you better hang on tight, cause tigers move real fast!

 

Tiger blood…tiger blood…boiling in my veins like fire and lightning from above.

Tiger blood…tiger blood…can’t slow down, baby not right now. Only got one life to love.

 

A lot of guys like me they don’t survive, they burn up like gasoline,

Guys like Jimi Hendrix, John Belushi, Elvis and James Dean.

No, there’s only four of us alive in the world, to this day we can still be seen,

That’s Chuck Norris, Bill Clinton, Me and Charlie Sheen!

 

Tiger blood…tiger blood…boiling in my veins like fire and lightning from above.

Tiger blood…tiger blood…can’t slow down, baby not right now. Only got one life to love.
