lyrics

Get up
Gotta run to beat the day
Get up
Gonna run your life away
Gotta beat the traffic
But the traffics jammed again

Don’t stop
Race to catch a cab
Don’t stop
See the metro pull away
Go to feed the meter- it’s too late
There’s a smiling cop and a piece of paper
Blast it! Why did I wait?

Seems like I’m always running
Trying hard to catch that brass ring
Time crunches are my only exercise
I always move too slow
Although I feel exhausted
I run as fast as I can but I
Miss the boat and miss my chance
A day late and a dollar short on this hamster wheel of life

Run
Catch the train or
Catch some hell,
Late again
Run
Don’t stop now
Don’t look back,
Don’t ask how

Seems like I’m always running
Trying hard to catch that brass ring
Time crunches are my only exercise
I always move too slow
Although I feel exhausted
I run as fast as I can but I
Miss the boat and miss my chance
A day late and a dollar short on this hamster wheel,
In this big rat race of life

Sometimes I wonder if the cheese is really worth it
Sometimes I wonder what I’ll see
If I slow down
Sometimes I wonder where it is I think I’m going
Oh shit! I’m late!I better just look at the ground and go and

Run
Catch the train or
Catch some hell,
Late again
Run
Don’t stop now
Don’t look back,
Don’t ask how

Run
Times flying
Run
Boss waiting
Run
I’m crying
Run
Hopes fading
Run
Times flying
Run
Boss waiting
Run
I’m crying
Run
Hopes fading
In this big rat race of life
