Into the shadow, please follow me Trust me now and you shall see Nothing will happen, only good Just come with me into this wood I promise you, you won’t be scarred Just relax and drop your guard If only for a moment or two (Though I’ll be gone when you’re askew) Don’t run away, it will be fun I won’t discard you, I will not shun I know your touch will set me free I promise, please, just don’t flee Curiosity won’t kill you, Cat Seriously, I just want to chat Really I’m like dear Robin Hood I lure you only for common good. Come now girl, don’t be shy No harm shall come, I would not lie You don’t know me? Is that you say? But, I’ll be your friend in every way Oh, those aren’t horns upon my brow I’d never think to disavow There’ll be no tricks, no slight of hand I’m a good man, understand? There’s no red skin beneath this hood I promise, just follow me, into this wood.
