Let me introduce you 
Since you saw my shadow self 
Living underneath you 
She can't resist a tickle out 
I'm a girl scout 
Searching for the new stuff 

Did I mention that it melts away(all gone)
She puts a sign out 
Out of order (a want a building that says) 
Makes you strongly disobey 
Guiding you away 
Chiding you away 

So quick to hide when I turn around 
She will rise just to embarrass me 
She likes to dance when it's dark inside 
Just a flashlight there 
For a guide 
Try and catch me if you can 
Free and wild 
Watch where you stand 
Below the net 
Desire it grows and grows 
Like a strawberry not a rose 
Prickly patch don't you stand on me 
Squishing down 
In the mud ahh!
