Why can't we live free

I’m a tiger you can see,
With colour yellow like a honey bee,
And you’re happy as you’re free,
So why can’t we too live free?

You keep us in the zoos for all our lives,
Away from our children an’ away from our wives,
And I’m speaking on the behalf of all the animals,
That why can’t we live free?

You take elephants’ ivories and bees’ honey,
All just because you need money,
Don’t you know that someday you’ll have to leave it?
So why can’t we live free?

Don’t you know that we provide you food?
Hoping that you’ll become good,
The bees help in the process of pollination,
So why can’t we live free?

You eat the fishes for your taste,
And those animals who are useless to you,
You consider them waste.
Why can’t we live free?

Sense my fear by looking in my golden eyes,
You’re given heart for good things,
And you’re also wise,
So why can’t we live free?

You also give birds the pain,
Don’t you like to see the birds happy?
Like the happy peacocks dance in the rain,
So why can’t we live free?

For us you’re like a spook,
We become very much scared,
When, in your eyes, we look,
Why can’t we live free?

Please don’t let us live in fear,
You can simply call us dear,
We’ll try not to harm you until you tease us,
Why can’t we live free?

We also have the right to live on this earth,
From the time of our birth,
Till the time of our death,
Why can’t we live free?

We also want to live free,
Among the trees,
Please don’t destroy our forests,
We want to live free.
