ANIMAL CITY
Music by: Shakira and Luis F. Ochoa
Lyrics by: Shakira


Why do all my friends now want to be your lovers
your family got bigger when they thought you were rich
And now like maniacs
They scratch your back
Even when it doesn't itch

I want to figure it all
I want to figure it all out
I want to save you from
Save you from all that's vain
Save you, from the things that cause us pain

Cause it's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to bite you

It's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to rip you right off

They believe you now have everything you wanted
And once you have become a star you have no right to bitch
But someday when you fail
They'll put you on sale
And buy you by the inch

But you're the real deal
And real is your middle name
You know sometimes I feel
We got to earn every breath we take, baby
Never mind the rules we break

Cause it's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to bite you

It's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to rip you right off

Cannibal world...
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to bite you my love
