Oh baby let's play some hide and go seek
Seen an alligator go jumpin' in the river
Singin' a song about five, ten, fifteen, twenty
Twenty-five, thirty, thirty-five, fourty, fourty-five
Fifty, fifty-five, sixty, sixty-five, seventy, seventy-five
Eighty, eighty-five, ninety, ninety-five, a hundred
I ain't gonna count but one more time
And that's gonna be when the sun goes down
I say last night and the night before
Twenty—four hours knock in' on the door
I ran upstairs to get my gun
And when I got back the robbers had run
Didn't go east, didn't go west
They must have run back to the robbers' nest
Oh, I'm gonna catch you this time honey

I ain't gonna count but one more time
I'm gonna get you sweetie pie
I'm gonna catch you, yes I'll do
Please don't let me search for you
I say last night and the night before
Twenty-four hours knockin' on the door
I ran upstairs to get my gun
And when I got back the robbers had run
Didn't go east, didn't go west
They must have run back to the robbers' nest
