Take It on the Run
by REO Speedwagon



Heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin' around.
They say you got a boyfriend, you're out late every weekend,
They're talkin' about you and it's bringin' me down

But I know the neighborhood
And talk is cheap when the story is good
And the tales grow taller on down the line.
But I'm telling you, babe, that I don't think it's true, babe,
And even if it is keep this in mind

You take it on the run baby
If that's the way you want it baby
Then I don't want you around.
I don't believe it, not for a minute
You're under the gun so you take it on the run.

You're thinking up your white lies
You're puttin' on your bedroom eyes
You say you're coming home but you won't say when.
But I can feel it coming if you leave tonight keep running
And you need never look back again

You take it on the run baby
If that's the way you want it baby
Then I don't want you around.
I don't believe it, not for a minute
You're under the gun so you take it on the run.
------
Take it on the run baby
If that's the way you want it baby
Then I don't want you around.
I don't believe it, not for a minute
You're under the gun so you take it on the run

Take it on the run baby
If that's the way you want it baby
Then I don't want you around.
I don't believe it not for a minute
You're under the gun so you take it on the run

Heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin' around
