Close Encounter of the Tiger Kind
You're at the circus - bathroom break.
A tiger's taken a break too.
This could be bad, for goodness sake.
What's a puny human to do?
Just don't panic, the experts say.
Don't look like food is also said.
Try not to look alive - okay!
Cuz all too soon you could look dead.
Got your cell phone, so take it out.
Call 911 emergency.
A tiger tale - hope there's no doubt.
A tiger roar could helpful be.
The tiger's got your number, so
The tiger calls it - doncha know!
