He was a poor boy, raised in a small family
They say that he was crazy,

He wants to dance, oh yeah,
He wants to see the lights a flashin` and listen to the thunder ring
He saw it in a window
He kinda liked the feeling, so shiny and smooth in his hand
And then one day he felt if,

He wants the same, oh yeah,
Like to hear the sound of his own name

He had a reputation spreading like fire throught the land
It wasn`t for the runnin` , but now he`s runnin` everyday
