Lyrics

RUN BILLY RUN
By Dana Lyons

Billy was a rugged boy
He asked a million questions and he had a loud voice
He was so curious
He could take up your whole day

His mother took a lot of time with this strong-willed child
Who’s got his own ideas and he speaks his own mind
But when he turns five
He’s gonna have to change his ways

Run Billy run
Before they can get you, Billy run
They don’t understand you, Billy run
There’s nothing wrong with you
It’s just this mixed up world

You tell me that you hate school
Cause they won’t let you play
And that they make rules
That you can’t help but break
And they berate you
For slowing the whole class down

They tell you sit down
You’ve got to be still
You must control yourself
Or you’re gonna get the pills
That will reshape you
So you’ll fit into the master plan
You gotta get out of there

Run Billy run
Before they can get you, Billy run
They don’t understand you, Billy run
There’s nothing wrong with you
It’s just this mixed up world

Run Billy run
From the teachers and the doctors, Billy run
Who would sedate a little boy, Billy run
There’s nothing wrong with you
It’ss just that you’re still free

Now I’m in the third grade
As I walk down the hall
I am embarrassed
Cause boys shouldn’t cry at all
I hear the laughing
And everyone says that I am dumb

And I line up
With the rest of the kids
At the nurse’s office
Where they hand out the pills
And she say take these
Then the colors get a little dull
Don’t let them do it to ya
