JEFFERSON STARSHIP


Ride The Tiger Lyrics

I want to ride, ride the tiger
I want to ride, ride the tiger
It will be black and white in the dead of night
Eyes flashing in the clear moonlight
I want to ride, ride the tiger.

It's like a tear in the hands of a western man
He’ll tell you about salt, carbon, and water
But a tear to a Chinese man
He'll tell you about sadness and sorrow or the love of a man and a woman.

I want to ride, ride the tiger
And I want to sail through the risin' sun for you and you (for you and you).
We’ve got something to learn from the other side
Something to give, we got nothing to hide
I want to ride, ride the tiger.

Black wants out of the streets
Yellow wants the country
Red wants the country back
And white wants out of this world
Sing, sing to the sky
I want to ride, ride the tiger
I want to ride, ride the tiger.

Look to the summer of seventy-five
All the world is gonna come alive
Do you want to ride, ride the tiger?

It's like a tear in the hands of a western man
He’ll tell you about salt, carbon and water
But a tear to an oriental man
He'll tell you about sadness and sorrow or the love of a man and a woman.
It’s like a tear
It’s like love
It’s like a tear
It’s like love
Do you want to ride?
