(Eddy Grant)

Well I'm running, police on my back
I've been hiding, police on my back
There was a shooting, police on my back
And the victim well he wont come back

I been running Monday Tuesday Wednesday
Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Runnin Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Saturday Sunday
What have I done?
What have I done?

Yes, I'm running down the railway track
Could you help me? Police on my back
They will catch me if I dare drop back
Wont you give me all the speed I lack

I been running Monday Tuesday Wednesday
Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Runnin Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Saturday Sunday
What have I done?
What have I done?

I'm running
‘M Running
Running

I'm running down the railway track
Could you help me? Police on my back
They will catch me if I dare drop back
Wont you help me find the speed I lack

I been running Monday Tuesday Wednesday
Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Runnin Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Saturday Sunday

What have I done?
What have I done?

Cos I'm running (police on my back)
Hiding (police on my back)
Running (police on my back)
Hiding (police on my back)

I'm running down the railway track
Could you help me? Police on my back
They will catch me if I dare drop back
They will kill me for the speed I lack

I've been running
I've been running
