Neko Case - Tigers Are Noble
Albüm Adı : The Tigers Have Spoken (2004)
"Tigers Are Noble"
This is a sad song, about tigers.
Let's champion the tigers.
Let's champion the tiger 'cause.
You know, I think that maybe I wrote this song for many reasons
But I was telling them earlier, I was in a cab in Toronto the other day
And the CBC was on and they were talking to a lady
Who specializes in animal husbandry
And she takes care of the tigers at The Toronto Zoo.
And they said "Well do you ever reintroduce the tigers?"
And she goes "Well, no, because their habitat can't sustain them."
And immediately I thought to myself
'There's so many extra children, we could just feed the children, to these tigers.
We don't need them. We're not doing anything with them.
Tigers are, tigers are...
Noble, and sleek
Children are loud and messy
I was one of those children
If I were to become tiger food
It would've been more noble than
Probably ruined the song for you now
But we'll still play it for you anyway
