This name I got we all agreed
See could stop stop it will rid
We could bind it in the cist
We could gather, throw a fit

Up to buy, Katie buys a kitchen-size, but not me in
Setting trap for love, making a waste of time, sitting still

I'm the sign and you can read.
I'm the sign and you're not deaf.
We could bind it in the cist.
We could gather, throw a fit.

Up to buy, Katie buys a kitchen-size, but not me in
Setting trap for love, making a waste of time, sitting still
I can hear you.  I can hear you.  I can hear you.

This name I got we all agree
See could stop stop it will rid
We could bind it in the cist
We could gather, throw a fit.

Up to buy, Katie buys a kitchen-size, but not me in
Setting trap for love, making a waste of time, sitting still

I can hear you.  I can hear you.  I can hear you.

You can gather when I talk, talk until you're blue
You could get away from me.  Get away from me.

Up to buy, Katie buys a kitchen-size, but not me
Setting trap for love, making a waste of time, sitting still
I can hear you.  I can hear you.  I can hear you.
I can hear you.  I can hear you.  I can hear you.
Can you hear me?
