Ringo Starr – Running Free lyrics

By Roger Brown


I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG I'LL LAST,
BUT I'VE GOTTA GET MOVIN' AND MOVIN' FAST.
I GOTTA BREAK THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE,
I'VE GOT TO RUN, I'VE GOT TO FLY.

FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
THAT'S THE WAY I WAS MEANT TO BE.
FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
FREEDOM LOOKS PRETTY GOOD TO ME.

NOW I'M IN A HURRY AND I CAN'T STAND STILL,
IF I DON'T GO NOW, YOU KNOW, I NEVER WILL.
I WANNA BE FOOT LOOSE AND FREE TO ROAM,
I WANNA CALL THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD MY HOME.

FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
THAT'S THE WAY I WAS MEANT TO BE.
FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
FREEDOM LOOKS PRETTY GOOD TO ME.

LIVING IN A CAGE NEVER REALLY WAS MY STYLE.
NOW I'VE GOT THE CHANCE, I'M A-RUNNIN' EVERY MILE.

(Meow - meow - meow - meow - meow)
(Meow - meow - meow - meow)

I'VE GOT A PLAN, I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THE DAY
WHEN I CAN GET THE CHANCE TO MAKE MY GET AWAY.
ALL I EVER NEEDED WAS AN OPEN DOOR,
AND NOW I'M GONNA BE AWAY AND THAT'S FOR SURE.

FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
THAT'S THE WAY I WAS MEANT TO BE.
FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
FREEDOM LOOKS PRETTY GOOD TO ME.

FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
THAT'S THE WAY I WAS MEANT TO BE.
FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
FREEDOM LOOKS PRETTY GOOD TO ME.

FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
THAT'S THE WAY I WAS MEANT TO BE.
FREE, FREE, RUNNING FREE,
FREEDOM LOOKS PRETTY GOOD TO ME.


DIALOG:

RUN, RUN, RUN DOWN THE ROAD. WHERE ARE YOU GOING, MOUSE, IN THE COLD, IN THE FREEZING SNOW? ANYWHERE TO BE AWAY FROM THE CAGE, ANYWHERE THAT WILL TAKE ME TO LIFE, TO ADVENTURE. WHAT'S THAT IN FRONT OF YOU? A SHIP!
"A SHIP! LOOK AT... LIT UP LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE! WHAT'S THAT WRITING ON THE SIDE?
THE QUEEN EL... THE Q.E.2!"
SCOUSE THE MOUSE LEAPT ONTO THE SHIP. SAILORS WERE PULLING IN THE GANG-PLANK.
"NEXT STOP, NEW YORK!"
"AMERICA! A MOUSE'S DREAM!"
SCOUSE SEEMED TO HEAR THE VOICE OF HIS NEW COCKNEY MOUSE FRIEND, BONCE, SINGING TO HIM, IN ANIMO.
