Everybody's on The Run lyrics

Everybody's on the run
By: jimmy buffett, marshall chapman, will jennings, michael utley
1985
I talk to more answering machines in a day, than I do to
People. nobody's home.
First time I ran was to the end of the block
But I didn't know then that it never would stop
Now I look around and what do I see
More and more people runnin' faster than me
These days
Everybody's on the run
These days
Everybody's on the run

Well I fell in love for the very first time
But I couldn't keep up with that girl of mine
Night after night on a mighty fast track
She ran like the wind and she never looked back
These days
Everybody's on the run
These days
Everybody's on the run

-- spoken: let's run

These days
Everybody's on the run
These days
Everybody's on the run

Now I've been to england and I've been to france
I learned to love oysters and I know how to dance
Someday I'll die and come back again
As some little boy just-a runnin' to win
These days
Everybody's on the run
These days
Everybody's on the run

Look in the mirror and what do I see
The gypsy and fool that I always will be
These days
Everybody's on the run
These days
Everybody's on the run

These days
Everybody's on the run
These days
Everybody's on the run
