Take the Money and Run
by Steve Miller



This here is a story about Billy Joe and Bobbi Sue,
Two young lovers with nothin' better to do,
Than sit around the house, get high, and watch the tube.
And here's what happened when they decided to cut loose.

They headed out to old El Paso,
That's where they ran into a great big hassle.
Billy Joe shot a man while robbin' his castle,
Bobbi Sue took the money and run.

Go on, take the money and run,
Go on, take the money and run,
Go on, take the money and run,
Go on, take the money and run.

Billy Mack is a detective down in Texas,
You know he knows just exactly what the facts is.
He ain't gonna let those two escape justice,
He makes his livin' off of the peoples' taxes.

Bobbi Sue, well, she slipped away,
Billy Joe caught up to her the very next day.
They got the money, hey, you know, they got away,
They headed down south and they're still running today.

Sayin,
Go on, take the money and run,
Go on, take the money and run,
Go on, take the money and run, (ooh, lord!)
Go on, take the money and run.
