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.
