Runnaway Child Running Wild Songtext

You played hooky from school
And you can't go out to play, yeah
Mama said, "For the rest of the week
In your room you gotta stay, yeah"

Now, you feel like the whole world's pickin' on you
But deep down inside you know it ain't true
You've been punished because your mother
Wants to raise you the right way, yeah
But you don't care 'cause you already made up your mind
You wanna run away, yeah

You're on your way
Run away child, running wild
Run away child, running wild
Better come back home
Where you belong


Roaming through the city going nowhere fast
You're on your own at last
Hey, it's getting late, where will you sleep
Gettin' kind-a hungry you forgot to bring something to eat
Oh, lost with no money, you start to cry
But remember you left home wanting to be grown
So dry your weepin' eyes

Siren screamin' down, neon light is flickin'
You want your mama there's nothing for you
You're frightened and confused I want my mama
But she's much too far away, she can't hear a word you say
You heard some frightening news on the radio
About little boys running away from home
And their parents don't see them no more

You wanna stop and hitch a ride and go home
But your mama told you never trust a stranger
And you don't know which way to go
Streets are dark and deserted not a sound nor sign of life
How you long to hear your mother's voice
'Cause you're lost and alone but remember you make the choice

Run away child, running wild
You better go back home where you belong
Run away child, running wild
You better go back home where you belong

You're lost in this great big city
Go back home where you belong
Not one familiar face ain't it a pity
Go back home where you belong
Oh, run away child, running wild
You better go back home where you belong, oh yeah

Mama, mama, mama please come and see about me
But she's much too far away, she can't hear a word you say, yeah
You're frightened and confused which way will you choose

I want my mama
I want my mama
I want my mama

Listen to your heart beat
Listen to your heart beat
It's beating much too fast
Go back home where you belong
Listen to your heart beat
It's beating much too fast
Go back home where you belong

Listen to your heart beat
It's beating much too fast
Go back home where you belong
Listen to your heart beat
It's beating much too fast
Go back home where you belong

Listen to your heart beat
It's beating much too fast
Go back home where you belong
