  • Money, who needs it,
    Let me live my life free and easy,
    Put my toothbrush in my hand,
    And let me be a travelin' man

    'Cause I'm a road runner, aby.
    I'm a road runner, baby,
    Can't stay in one place too long,
    I'm a road runner baby,

    You might look at me and I'll be gone.
    You can love me if you want to,
    But I do declare,
    When I get restless

    I got to move somewhere
    I'm a road runner baby,
    Anywhere's my home,
    And love the life I live,

    And I'm gonna live the life I love
    Road runner, baby.
    Don't want no woman to tie me down,
    Got to be free, baby

    To roam around.
    All my life I've been like this,
    If you love me it's your own risk,
    When the dust hit my shoe,

    I got the urge to move
    Says I'm a road runner baby,
    Got to keep on keepin on.
    And I live the life I love,

    And I'm gonna love the life I live
    Road runner, baby. Writer/s: Brian Holland, Edward Holland, Lamont Dozier
