lyrics

Said the tiger to the crane
Tell me what to do, what must I do?
I have always had the heart of kite, I have always wanted to fly.
But these four legs keep me down
Yes these four legs keep me down
And the crane looked him right in the eyes
What would I know? How should I know?
I am just a crane. I am not a bird. I am not designed for the sky
It's these long legs that keep me down.
Yes my long legs keep me down.
And so they both stay on the land
But it wasn't supposed to go like this
Said the tiger to the child
Tell me what to know, what must I know?
I have always wanted to be in love, I want to feel it in my bones.
But my mind of stone keeps me down.
Yes my mind of stone keeps me down.
And the child shot him between the eyes.
What would I know? How should I know?
I am just a child, I am not human. I am not designed to be in love.
It's my heart of stone that keeps me down
Yes, it's my heart of stone that keeps me down.
And so the child destroyed the land.
But it wasn't supposed to go like this.
No, it wasn't supposed to go like this.
Yes my heart of stone keeps me down.
Yes my heart of stone keeps me down.
Yes my heart of stone keeps me down.
