Pulling a Tiger's Tail - Lyrics by Robert Costello (C) 2008

I met you Thursday last
You moved in really fast
Been here for days, it feels like weeks
It grates my mind to hear you speak
You've wrecked my life
Take back your knife
Get off my bed
Get out of my head
That's Right
I should have known what you'd be like
You didn't break a sweat
Pierced My heart with a nail
That's what I get for pulling a tiger's tail
