Lyrics

play Suddenly something has   to me
play As I was having my   of  
play Suddenly I was feeling  
play I was   and totally stressed
play Do you know you made me  
play Do you know you made me  

play And the thing that   to me
play Is you'll never really  
play And the thing that   me out
play Is I'll always be in  

play It is a lovely thing that we have
play It is a lovely thing that we
play It is a lovely thing, the animal
play The animal instinct

play So take my   and come with me
play We will change  
play So take my hands and we will pray
play They won't take you  
play They will never make me cry, no
play They will never make me die

play And the thing that gets to me
play Is you'll never really see
play And the thing that freaks me out
play Is I'll always be in doubt

play The animal, the animal
play The animal instinct in me
play It's the animal, the animal
play The animal instinct in me
play It's the animal, it's the animal
play It's the animal instinct in me
play It's the animal, it's the animal
play It's the animal instinct in me

play The animal, the animal,
play The animal instinct in me
play It's the animal, it's the animal
play It's the animal instinct in me

In 1999, in a video about Animal Instinct, Dolores explained:

“It’s like a hearty song, and it’s about a hearty thing. It’s just about love that comes when you’re carrying a child, when you give birth to a child and stuff when you become a parent. It’s the animal instinct, it’s a protection feeling that you’ve never felt before for anything […] I am a different person than I was two years ago. Women are extraordinary creatures really, you know, I mean the fact that we can give birth, what the bodies can do is pretty amazing, and feed, feed children with your own body […] It’s a pretty cool thing really, and it does change you, it makes you a lot more confident and happy in yourself makes you more thankful.”
