lyrics

THE ANIMAL I AM

the animal I am inside
don’t give a damn about my pride
her smile is a mile wide
cus she don’t give a damn

the animal I have in me
don’t give a shit for dignity
so go ahead and let me be
the animal I am

when I try to reason she just laughs
when she cries it breaks my heart in half

in my younger days I tried
to keep her locked away inside
but there ain’t no use to try and hide
the animal I am

the animal that’s in me yet
she’s got no use for etiquette
heaven knows if you will get
a lion or a lamb

and god forbid you fall for me
though I may treat you tenderly
hang around and you will see
the animal I am

when I try to reason she just laughs
but when she cries it breaks my heart in half

in my younger days I tried
to keep her locked away inside
there ain’t no use to try and hide
the animal I am

well she barks all night
she’s always startin fights
but she’s only actin tough
all she needs is love

in my younger days I tried
to keep her locked away inside
but there ain’t no use to try and hide
the animal I am
