Runnin' Away

This song is by Sly & The Family Stone and appears on the album There's A Riot Goin' On (1971).

Runnin' away to get away
Ha-ha, ha-ha
You're wearing out your shoes
Look at you fooling you

Making blues of day and night
Hee-hee, hee-hee
You're stretching out your dues
Look at you fooling you

Shorter cut is quicker but
Ha-ha, ha-ha
Time is here to stay
Look at you fooling you

The deeper in debt, the harder you bet
Hee-hee, hee-hee
You need more room to play
Look at you fooling you

Another day, you're farther away
Ha-ha, ha-ha
A longer trip back home
