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
Running 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
Running Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

What have I done?
What have I done?

I'm running
I am running
I am running

Yes, I'm running down the railway track
Won't 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
Running Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

What have I done?
What have I done?

Well, I'm running, police on my back
Hiding, police on my back
Running, police on my back
Hiding, police on my back

Well, I'm running down the railway track
Won't you help me, police on my back
They will catch me if I dare drop back
Would you give me all the speed I lack

I've been running
I've been running
