Holly told me, "You better give me a child"
I said, "Holly, there's no way"
We don't even like each other all that much
We couldn't make it one more day

She said, "You better look out, buster
The next time you see me you're gonna pay"
I said, "Holly, I'm not running anymore
But I'm on my way"

I'm on my way, I'm on my way
I'm on my way, but I'm not running anymore

Well I got two circus clowns here who like to fight
They got one black eye and a bloody nose
They are the hoodlums of my third wife
Whatever I say they will oppose

I try to teach those clowns something
Like how to make it day to day
I say, "Hey, you kids, I'm not running anymore
But I'm on my way"

I'm on my way, I'm on my way
I'm on my way and I'm not running anymore

Well I look in the mirror, what the hell happened to me?
Whatever I had, has gone away
I'm not the young kid that I used to be
So I push the hair back out of my face

That's okay, I knew this would happen
But I was hopin' not today
Hey baby, I'm not running anymore
But I'm on my way

I'm on my way, I'm on my way
I'm on my way and I'm not running anymore
I'm on my way, I'm on my way
I'm on my way and I'm not running anymore, for sure
