  • I move as fast as I can
    I like to get around
    I'm crazy like a madman
    My feet don't touch the ground
    I move amongst the night life
    And they just step aside
    'Cause when they see me coming
    They know I'm running wild

    Dead or alive there's nothing
    That bothers me at all
    I take on all comers
    They back off or they fall
    They raise their hands to stop me
    I laugh and I defy
    'Cause what's the point in living
    Unless you're living wild

    No chains can hold me down
    I always break away
    I never hear society
    Tell me what to do or say
    I taste the life that pleases me
    And raise a storm for all the world to see
    I never stumble, never fall
    Never stop for rest
    I rebel but I walk tall
    And I demand respect

    I move amongst the nightlife
    And they just step aside
    'Cause when they see me coming
    They know I'm running wild

    I'm running wild
    I'm running wild
    Get outta my way
    I'm running wild
    I'm running wild
    You better believe it Writer/s: GLENN RAYMOND TIPTON

  • Dan Gillespy from Courtenay BcThis true ultimate Judas Priest headbanging heavy metal classic is wild and will always sound good.
  • Trent from Edmonton, AbMaiden didn't steal the riff for "The Wicker Man". In fact, they inspired the riff from the song in their concert video Raising Hell where the woman gets her head drilled apart.
