Paper Tiger

Oh you paper tiger
Now see what you’ve done
You made your stand on shifting sand
And now begins the fun

Your bluff’s been called at last,
So what do you do now
That someone got the drop on you
And finally faced you down

Oh, you paper tiger…

Oh you paper tiger
Now see what you’ve done
Every chamber emptied
And nowhere left to run

How could you forget
The only code that you lived by:
To move so fast and talk so soft
And keep your powder dry

Oh, you paper tiger…

Oh you paper tiger
Now look what they’ve done
They’ve picked you clean and strung you up
To dry out in the sun

Oh you bigshot bankrupt
You flamed-out flatlined fake
They’ll bake you in the ashes
Of your first and last mistake

Oh, you paper tiger…
