My eyes stare at the painting, I can't take my eyes off of it
It runs as fast as a cheetah
"pound, pound, pound" goes it
I hear the tiger roaring
as loud as a volcano
blue, pink, orange, the colors of
a tropical smoothie. It makes
me feel happy and glad
The tiger rubs his face against
me, I smile
blue, pink, orange, the colors I love.
