This tribute to tigers roars out in a restless and aggressive 7/8 beat, in f, f# and g minor. Its orchestral parts are acting as suggestive exposition of the vocals, performed as duo, triplet and full choir.

Another one of my really old songs, originally recorded as a huuuuge XM file in Fast Tracker 2. It's also on my list of songs to re-record some day! Fun fact: The castanets are done vocally. They'll be tricky to re-record, as I don't have any real ones. :)
Edit: I do have a pair of castanets now but I don't know how to play them.:)

Release date: Jul 21 , 1997

Lyrics

Verse 1
Tiger, magnificent feline,
most paw-some of creatures,
you beautiful cat.
Tiger, by legends known widely,
by man feared and hated,
but truth is that

You, tiger, no-one but you,
tiger, show us the world
as it ought to be.
Tiger, lend us your eyes,
tiger, teach us to live,
tiger, teach us to see.

Refrain
Tiger, show your stripes,
Tiger, move your paws,
Tiger, flick your tail,
Tiger, use your claws,

Tiger, show your stripes.
Tiger, let your roar
echo through the lands
powerful, therefore

You tiger, noone but
you tiger, show us the
world as it ought to
be.

Verse 2
Tiger, king of the jungle,
velvet-pawed wanderer,
deadly as night
Tiger, soft as a cloud, yet
stronger than thunder
from the height

Therefore you tiger,
noone but you,
tiger, show us the world
as it ought to be
You tiger, noone but you,
tiger are the one,
we all agree

Refrain

Verse 3
Tiger, finally help us
to make the world
a better place.
Lead us through plague
and through fire
regardless of species,
regardless of race

Because you, tiger,
no-one but you,
tiger, show us the world
as it ought to be
Tiger, lend us your eyes,
tiger, teach us to live,
tiger, teach us to see.

Refrain
