12, 11, 10...
Heart pounding as I hide from him in this den
Feeling stronger than most, but weaker than some
Ready or not, here I come.

9, 8, 7...
Fearful of Devin as he counts from seven
He is so close that I can smell that sweet gum
Ready or not, here I come.

6, 5, 4...
Heart pounding, I panic and run out the door
I hear footsteps, but they sound like a sweet hum
Ready or not, here I come.

3, 2, 1...
He is laughing because he thinks this is fun
As I fall, free from fear, I start feeling numb
Ready or not, here I come.
