  • Well I'm running police on my back
    I've been hiding police on my back
    There was a shooting police on my back
    And the victim well he wont come back

    I been running monday tuesday wednesday
    Thursday friday saturday sunday runnin
    Monday tuesday wednesday thursday friday
    Saturday sunday

    Running down the railway track
    Could you help me' police on my back
    They will catch me if I dare drop back
    Wont you give me all the speed I lack

    I been running monday tuesday wednesday
    Thursday friday saturday sunday runnin
    Monday tuesday wednesday thursday friday
    Saturday sunday

    I'm still running down the railway track
    Could you help me' police on my back
    They will catch me if I dare drop back
    Wont you give me all the speed I lack Writer/s: Eddy Grant
