You’re wondering if I’m as wild as a tiger,
or cattle stampeding,
a bull kicking very hard.
You want to tell me if I am as wild
as a horse that’s hungry and mad,
a monkey swinging from branch to branch,
a dragon blowing fire.
If I am wild as a fire out of a rocket,
a comet in high speed,
a very strong blizzard.
I’m as wild as a bomb exploding,
lightning striking,
a heart beating fast.
