“Tigers are majestic beings to be adored for their pride, not their hide”

I wish I just wish
If you weren’t treated as a doormat
I wish I just wish
If you were left peacefully to chase a rat

Wishes I have in many
But all to work out I need money
The money that burns wishes to desires
The money that burns desires into ambitions

Now what to do, where do I scour, Lor,
For the money?
Oh Lor, speak up to me
Can you see, Lor, just see?
Open your eyes not once, nor twice
But a billion times, when will this atrocity end????
When will the whole world become a friend?
To the hopeless, helpless and hapless creatures.

Do I need money, Lord,
To save this autocratic world?
Do I need money, Lord
To save this autocratic world?
Or simply the aspiration
Of a single lady
Can turn into the aspiration of her nation?

Can leather bags become outmoded?
Can silk saris become outmoded?
Can this crazy fashion become outmoded?
Can the poor creatures be loaded,
Out from the confines of their cages?

Hopeless wishes that I can pour
From letters to words, words to pages.

Can I become the poor creatures’ hapless teacher??
And talk to them about their disastrous future.
Can I become the poor creatures’ hapless teacher??
And talk to them about their disastrous future.
Can I, Can I, Can I, Can I,
Can I, Can I, Can I, Can I,
Give it a shot, give it a try??

Wishes I have in many
But all to work out I do not need money, honey
Wishes I have in many
But all to work out I do not need money, honey
I will help you, save you, honey, from my own will
I will help you, protect you, honey, so wait still!!!!!!!!

THIS SONG IS ABOUT A DESTITUTE LADY WHO TAMES A WILD TIGER CUB AGAINST THE WISHES OF HER POACHER HUSBAND. SHE THINKS THAT MONEY IS THE ROOT CAUSE THAT CAN SALVAGE MEN FROM POACHING TIGERS BUT THEN AT THE END OF THE SONG SHE IS DETERMINED TO SAVE THE TIGER CUB WITHOUT THE ASSISTANCE OF MONEY. I HAD ALREADY WRITTEN A STORY REGARDING THIS THEME
