everybody’s on the run lyrics – jimmy buffett

everybody’s on the run
by: jimmy buffett, marshall chapman, will jennings, michael utley
1985
“i talk to more answering machines in a day, than i do to
people. n-body’s home.”
first time i ran was to the end of the block
but i didn’t know then that it never would stop
now i look around and what do i see
more and more people runnin’ faster than me
these days
everybody’s on the run
these days
everybody’s on the run

well i fell in love for the very first time
but i couldn’t keep up with that girl of mine
night after night on a mighty fast track
she ran like the wind and she never looked back
these days
everybody’s on the run
these days
everybody’s on the run

— spoken: “let’s run”

these days
everybody’s on the run
these days
everybody’s on the run

now i’ve been to england and i’ve been to france
i learned to love oysters and i know how to dance
someday i’ll die and come back again
as some little boy just-a runnin’ to win
these days
everybody’s on the run
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

these days
everybody’s on the run
these days
everybody’s on the run
