​Run Run Run To The Centre Pompidou

This song is by Grant Hart and appears on the album Good News For Modern Man (1999).

It's ten a.m. in gay Paris
I got half a day and a whole lot to see
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou

From the Pont Marie down to Tolbec West
Well, the Metro's closed and it's craziness
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou

I haven't been here now for such a long time
Now I'm here and I want to see it through
To miss this opportunity would be a crime
Chances are so far between and few

Well, I got to hurry, well, I got to move
I got so little time, so forget the Louvre
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou

So many signs I'm gonna disobey
And these cafe tables getting in the way
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou

Two thousand years of culture here before your eyes
Well I'm here and I'm longing to proceed
What I am seeing here is how a culture dies
What is past is everything you need

Well, the sun is high and it's almost noon
I'll have to turn around if I don't get there soon
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou

I haven't been here now for such a long time
Now I'm here and I want to see it through
To miss this opportunity would be a crime
Chances are so far between and few

Well, I'm stuck in a city of lights that are red
But my destination's still miles ahead
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou

There's so many things that I'd like to see
If I ever get from point A to point B
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou
Gotta run run run to the Centre Pompidou...
