LyricsEdit

I shout this,

You shout that,

The clouds are coming over looking awful black

It's all hot air


You say go,

I say stay,

Clear blue sky goes Sheffield grey

It's all hot air


I've grown immune to your claws,

Pussycat, I know...


All your threats are tissue tigers,

Crawling across the table to me

All your threats are tissue tigers,

Ripping 'em up is easy for me now


I shout this,

You shout that,

An eye for heart and a tit for a tat

You easy tear


Think your stripes,

Are yellow and black,

I can only see the yellow one down your back,

You easy tear


I've grown immune to your claws,

Pussycat, I know...


All your threats are tissue tigers,

Crawling across the table to me

All your threats are tissue tigers,

Ripping 'em up is easy for me now


We argue all life long,

You'd swear that black was wrong,

Throw tantrums like Queen Kong,

I've trapped you in my song


All your threats are tissue tigers,

Crawling across the table to me

All your threats are tissue tigers,

Ripping 'em up is easy for me now
