Hide and Seek
Courtney Hartman


I know it's cold but don't complain
You know what happens if daddy hears ya
Just hold my hand, walk real close
Sometimes it helps to wiggle your toes

We'll give it a bit, he'll soon forget
That he ever brought us into town with him
We'll find enough change to catch the Q train
If you find a dime you win this race

Cuz daddy's lost his mind again
He's layin there asleep
Don't he look a little like a manatee
So come on brother let's run and play
You close your eyes I'll run away
Through Atlantic station
Playing hide and seek

When we get home we'll snuggle up warm
Underneath Momma's old curtain cover
We'll lay right there, as long as we can
Til daddy comes stumbling home again

And if we get lucky we'll find some food
Hiding in the cupboard or the living room
Oh boy, if only it'd be
A box of crackers or a can of cheese

But daddy's lost his mind again
He's layin there asleep
Don't he look a little like a manatee
So come on brother let's run and play
You close your eyes I'll run away
Through Atlantic station
Playing hide and seek

Wake up, we gotta climb through the window
Cuz daddy's brought his rowdy friends home
You know what happens, if we stay
Come on now, we got to run away

Cuz daddy's lost his mind again
He's blowin at the seams
Don't he sound a little like a manatee
So come on brother let's run away
You close your eyes I'll pretend it's play time
Running to the station
Playing hide and seek

Oh, come on brother let's run and play
You close your eyes, I'll run away
Through Atlantic station
Playing hide and seek
