Robber Baby

Robber Baby, pull that rope around the arms Of me.
been an awful good girl, Robber baby,
so hurry through the window tonight.

Robber baby, Please use the scarf near you,
Light blue.
Itíll keep me nice and quiet, thatís true,
Robber baby, so hurry through the window tonight.

Think of all the jewels youíll find,
Think of the helpless girl youíll have to bind,
Next year I can look just as good,
But I want you to come in and be so kind,

Robber baby, I wanna feel,
the tape from the red roll you peel,
Been an angel all year,
Robber baby, so hurry through the window tonight.

Robber honey, there's something you need to stuff,
That cloth
Into my little mouth,
Robber honey, so hurry through the window tonight.

Robber cutie, and pull the rope tight around my knees,
Yes please.
And pull my ankles right back,
Robber cutie, and hurry through the window tonight.

Come and tie me on the bed
Wrap one more big scarf around my head,
I really do want you to,
Let's see if you will fulfil my dreams,

Robber baby, please leave me one thing you wonít miss,
A kiss.
On my forehead as you go,
Robber baby, so hurry through the window tonight,
Hurry through the window tonight,
Hurry, tonight.

 

Just hear those alarm bells
ringing and green lights flashing round too
Come on we need to break free
and get out as fast as can be

I know the ropes are rubbing
and you are calling ďHllppĒ too...
But until we get this tape off
Nobody knows Iím here with you

Twist the wrists, Twist the wrists,
Twist the wrists, Oh no!
The knot just wonít go,
and our arms are tied tighter than before

Can you push, can you push, can you push
and stand, while Iím holding your hand
then we can jump to the side and then I can try
to get that knife I see.

Our cheeks are flushed and reddy
and I feel unsteady, you see...
Were tied so tight
together like birds of
a feather would be

Lets try to move together
and not fall over, youíll see,
Come on its
worth us trying and defying
what the masked men said to me

I know they surprised us when they came through the
door today
And they tied and gagged us before going on their way
but if we hop along and stay very strong we can reach the bench Ďoer there
and then we can try and cut the rope without
a care.

There's a happy feeling nothing in the
world can buy,
when they pass around the
coffee and the pumpkin pie
It'll be like a picture print, by Currier and Ives
these wonderful things are the things we remember
through our lives!

Just hear those alarm bells
ringing and green lights flashing round too
Come on we need to break free
and get out as fast as can be
So make one more jump and see
if we can now get free

Thatís it I can rub on the ropes now and then we can both
be free
be free
be free
you and me...
