​Race You

This song is by Elizabeth & The Catapult and appears on the album Taller Children (2009).

I'm gonna race you race you race you race you back home
The sun's going down now
And I'm ready to go, I'm ready to go

'Cause there's dirt on my skirt and pebbles stuck in my toes
Oh which way should we go down
Nobody knows, nobody knows
I'm gonna race you back home
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ooh
I'm gonna race you back home
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ooh

'Cause there's a shortcut down the beaten path
One step to the right, three to the left
The moon's so high
The wind's so fast
Makes us feel like goddesses

1 2 3 set, ready set go
May heaven help you if you're slow
We're gonna run like bandits
While the flames are chasin'
Racin' racin' racin' racin' back home

Ooh I'm gonna race you race you race you race you back home
Everyone's waitin'
And your supper's gone cold, your supper's gone cold
Yeah the table's ready, your sisters all in a row
They're all waitin' to kiss you
And tell me you've grown, my how you've grown
I'm gonna race you back home
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ooh
I'm gonna race you back home
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ooh

Roll roll roll
Run run run
Meet me at the bottom
After I have won

Roll roll roll
Run run run
Meet me at the bottom
After I have won
I have won

'Cause there's a shortcut down the beaten path
One step to the right, three to the left
The moon's so high
The wind's so fast
Makes us feel like goddesses

1 2 3 set, ready set go
May heaven help you if you're slow
We're gonna run like bandits
While the flames are chasin'
Racin' racin' racin' racin'
Oh I'm gonna race you back home
Home home
Home.
