  • Hangman, we played rubber soul with a razor blade
    Behind the church, hiding place,
    It was a long joke 'til the punch line came.
    Can you read my mind, read my mind
    Follow along to the end of the song

    Hangman, we played double dutch with a hand grenade
    Behind the church, hiding place.
    Apathetic to the devil's face.
    Wear the sheriff's badge put your toys away
    They let us go saying let us pray

    Hangman, we played hide and seek on the fire escape
    Through the smoke we saw the flame
    It was a long wait 'til the firetruck came
    On the count of three
    Jump with me on the count of three
    One two one two three go!

    Hangman, we played blind man's bluff with the ninth brigade
    Throw the brick through the windowpane,
    Double dutch 'til they stop the game,
    'Til the cops show up, hand cuff stunned
    They let us go but we lost one

    Hangman ,we played blind man's bluff 'til they stopped the game
    Youth without youth, born without time,
    Youth without youth, can you read my mind? Writer/s: Emily Haines, James Shaw
