Pearl Jam - Animal

Live MTV VMA´s 1993

  

Christian Slater introduced Pearl Jam performing Animal for the first time.  Interesting that a song with no video was featured at the MTV's award show.

Lyrics:

One, two, three, four, five against one
Five, five, against one
Said one, two, three, four, five against one
Five, five...five, five...five against one

Torture from you to me
Abducted from the street
I'd rather be...
I'd rather be with...
I'd rather be with an animal

Why would you wanna hurt me?
So frightened of your pain...
I'd rather be...
I'd rather be with...
I'd rather be with an animal
I'd rather be...
I'd rather be...
I'd rather be with an animal

I'd rather be...
I'd rather be with...
I'd rather be with an animal
I'd rather be...
I'd rather be with...
I'd rather be with an animal

Said one, two, three, four, five against one
Five, five...five, five...five against one
One, two, three, four, five against one
Five, five...five, five...five against one
