I'm a tiger when alone

Why is it that we’re so bold When we’re alone? So brash , so rash Oh me, oh my! Why do we turn As mute as a stone When a good looking Person walks by? Why do we pale And blanch white as a bone? Why do we blush And stammer and sigh? Where does our breath go? What makes that lump In our throat? When beauty comes to our eye? Why can’t we be A lion, not a goat? The witty person with head Held high? Why can’t we speak In more than a squeak And why does our mouth Go dry? I’d tell you the truth But alas, and forsooth I’m simply, and sadly… Too shy
