It's no use saying that it's alright, it's alright
But where were you after midnight, midnight?
Heard a bang, bang, bang, down they go, it's just a job you do
'Cause the harder they run and the harder they fall
I'm coming down hard on you

Now no one saw what you look like, what you look like
Like a stranger you came out of the night, out of the night
'Cause someone put the word on you and I hope my aim is true

'Cause I got a name and I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name and I got a number, I'm coming after you

Now don't keep saying that it's alright, it's alright
It seems you went just a little too far this time
Heard a bang, bang, bang and down you go, it's just a job I do
'Cause the harder you run the harder you fall
I'm coming down hard on you, hard on you, I hope my aim is true

I got a name and I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name and I got a number and I'm coming after you

Keep running, keep running, city to city
Even if you're innocent
You can cause too much embarrassment
And though your heart is aching
And you know there's no mistaking
You feel your life line breaking

You can feel your hands are shaking
And no one answers the telephone
You could never never ever go home alone
And though your heart is aching
And you know there's no mistaking
The footsteps close behind

Now don't pretend that you sleep at night, but sleep tight
And can't you feel that the time is right? It's alright
Heard a bang, bang, bang and down you go, oh no one really cares
'Cause the harder you run, and the harder you fall
I'm coming down hard on you, hard on you, I'm hoping that my aim is true

I got a name and I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name and I got a number, I'm coming after you
I got a name and I got a number, I got a line on you
And I got a name and I got a number, I got a job to do
