Me, Tarzan

come on then, come on
when you think you're ready
if you are sure you can
come on then, come on
gather your strength
you'll need it all
when you've mined enough courage
come on then, come on
deepest night, bright of day
you choose the time and weapons
I'm not running, I'm fully primed
come on then, come on
bare your teeth, beat your chest
sharpen your nails
bare your breasts
come on then, come on
I am waiting, I've no fear
drag me to the floor, take me down
it's not a fight, you can't lose
come on then, come on
