I had a hard run
Running from your window
I was all night running, running, running 
I wonder if you care? 
I had a run-in 
Run around and run down
Run around a corner
Run smack into a tree

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please 
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore

Dressed myself in green
I went down to the sea
Try to see what's going down
Maybe read between the lines
Had a feeling I was falling, falling, falling

Turned around to see 
Heard a voice calling, calling, calling 
You was comin after me
Back to me

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please 
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore


Ran into a rainstorm
Ducked into a bar door
It was all night pouring, pouring rain
But not a drop on me 

Test me, test me 
Why don't you arrest me?
Throw me in the jail house
Until the sun goes down
Till it go down

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please 
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore
