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 won't come back

I've 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
Won't you give me all the speed I lack

I've 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
I'm running
I keep running

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
Won't you help me find the speed I lack

I've 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
