Drip, Drip, Drip

What is that I hear, that rhythm sound

Drip, Drip, Drip

Do you hear it, that pitter, patter sound

Drip, Drip, Drip

It’s like a beacon from a Lighthouse.

Drip, Drip, Drip

Flashing a warning of danger of some kind

Drip, Drip, Drip

Its getting louder, can you hear it?

Drip, Drip, Drip

Wonder what that is?

Drip, Drip, Drip

Can you make it stop?

Drip, Drip, Drip

It’s frightening me

Drip, Drip, Drip

I’m closing my eyes

Drip, Drip, Drip

I can’t stand that sound

Drip, Drip, Drip

I’m covering my ears

Drip, Drip, Drip

Someone make it stop!

Drip, Drip, Drip

Please!

Drip, Drip, Drip

Why are you just looking at me?

Drip, Drip, Drip

Can’t you hear it?

Drip, Drip, Drip

Can you stop it?

Drip, Drip, Drip

Don’t you care?

Drip, Drip, Drip

How can you stand it, its so loud?

Drip, Drip, Drip

Doesn't it hurt your ear?

Drip, Drip, Drip

Don’t look at me like that

Drip, Drip, Drip

I know what I hear

Drip, Drip, Drip

Please stop it!

Drip, Drip, Drip

Please someone make it stop!

Drip, Drip, Drip

It’s driving me crazy that sound!

Drip, Drip, Drip

Stop it!Stop it!Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!

Shush now it’s alright

Silence

The big orderly wheeled the gurney down the hall to room 409.
