Please chase me
I know you want to
But do not expect to capture me
For I am the gingerbread man!
Fall for me if you please
Just don’t expect me to catch you
Lay your heart on the line
But do not expect me to do the same to mine
I do not pretend to be your lover, or best friend
I do not pretend to be your fairytale prince
Do not deny your role, for you know your place!
Do not blame me for your shattered heart, or any love lost
Do not blame me for the delusions,
or fantasies that you create in your own head,
simply because we’ve shared the same bed
Do you see?!?
Do you see how much fun I am ?!?
You’ll never catch this champ!
For I am the Gingerbread Man!
