  • So shut your mouth,
    Look at your tongue it's hanging out
    As you whistle down the wind
    From the north down to the south

    What was done but never said
    When all is still, the thrill is dead
    If you're pissing in the wind,
    Watch your feet, watch where you tread

    'Cause it's a minefield out there
    Yeah it's a minefield out there

    Have you ever heard such a thing in your life as three blind mice?

    So shut your mouth
    Look at your tongue it's hanging out
    Where's your song that's not been sung?
    Oh what's up, cat got your tongue?

    Oh I forget myself, how impolite
    When I said so long to wrong from right
    I'm wondering when you'll come along
    'Cause my mind is on the run

    And it's feline, feline, feline
    My mind is on the run
    My mind is on the run
    My mind is on the run

    So sit around,
    Find a job and settle down
    They'll be tracking your tail
    From booking to bail

    Just shut your mouth,
    (My mind is on the run)
    Look at your tongue still hanging out
    (My mind is on the run)
    As you whistle down the wind
    (My mind is on the run)
    From the north down to the south
    (My mind is on the run)

    Ah it's a minefield out there
    (My mind is on the run)
    Yeah it's a minefield out there
    (My mind is on the run)
    (So shut your mouth)
    It's a minefield out there
    (My mind is on the run)
    (Look at your tongue it's hanging out)
    It's a minefield out there
    (My mind is on the run)

    My mind is on the run
    My mind is on the run
    My mind is on the run
    My mind is on the run Writer/s: Drew Mcconnell, John Robinson, Michael Whitnall, Peter Doherty
