Kesha employs a rap-sing style on the track where she raps lyrics like "Whenever you tell me I'm pretty / That's when the hunger really hits me" and "I have a heart I swear I do / Just not baby when it comes to you". "Cannibal", makes use of synth and dance driven backings while Kesha sings about maneater tendencies and makes a reference to serial-killer, Jeffrey Dahmer. Present throughout the song are snippets of Kesha yodeling. The aid of autotune and vocoders are prominent throughout the track, also.

LyricsEdit

I have a heart I swear I do

But just not baby when it comes to you
I get so hungry when you say you love me
If you know what's good for you
I think you're hot I think you're cool
You're the kinda guy I'd stalk in school
But now that I'm famous, you're up my anus
Now I'm gonna eat you fool!

I eat boys up, breakfast and lunch
Then when I'm thirsty, I drink their blood
Carnivore, animal, I am a Cannibal
I eat boys up, you better run
I am Cannibal
I am Cannibal (I'll eat you up)
I am Cannibal
I am Cannibal (I'll eat you up)

Whenever you tell me I'm pretty
That's when the hunger really hits me
You're little heart goes pitter patter
I want your liver on a platter
Use your finger to stir my tea
and for dessert I'll suck your teeth
Be too sweet and you'll be a gonner
I'll pull a Jeffrey Dauhmer

I eat boys up, breakfast and lunch
Then when I'm thirsty, I drink their blood
Carnivore, animal, I am a Cannibal
I eat boys up, you better run
I am Cannibal
I am Cannibal (I'll eat you up)
I am Cannibal
I am Cannibal (I'll eat you up)

Ohohwoahohwoah x8

I am Cannibal
I am Cannibal (I'll eat you up)
I am Cannibal
I am Cannibal (I'll eat you up)

I love you
I warned you
Roar
