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

What have I done?

I been running Monday Tuesday Wednesday
Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday runnin'
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Saturday Sunday

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
