Jimmy Buffett – Everybody's On The Run lyrics

First time I ran
Was to the end of the block
I didn't know then
That it never would stop
Mow I look around
And what do I see
More and more people
Running faster then me
These days
Everybody's on the run

When I fell in love
For the very first time
I couldn't keep up
With that girl of mine
On a mighty fast track
She ran like the wind
And she never looked back
These days
Everybody's on the run

Now I've been to England
And I've been to France
I've learned to love oysters
And I know how to dance
Someday I'll die
And come back again
As some little boy
Just running to win
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
