The Lyrics

What if Randy Owens was a runner? He'd have to get his legs pumped up to sing this song. Requested by Terrence Allen Buddington.
[Chorus]
The longer you walk, the faster I run,
I'll be winning the race now, while I jump the gun.
I'm running faster, and faster, and faster with no time for fun,
The longer you walk, the faster I run.

[Verse 1]
I drank some water bottles,
To keep up my strength.
I didn't want to pass out,
Because I'd run a length on this track I'd do.


[Chorus]
The longer you walk, the faster I run,
I'll be winning the race now, while I jump the gun.
I'm running faster, and faster, and faster with no time for fun,
The longer you walk, the faster I run.

[Verse 2]
Could I do it indoors?
Is this the outdoor track?
Is there a surprise there,
When I win the lack of these thoughts I'd find?

[Chorus]
The longer you walk, the faster I run,
I'll be winning the race now, while I jump the gun.
I'm running faster, and faster, and faster with no time for fun,
The longer you walk, the faster I run.

[Bridge]
Keep running, oh yeah, yeah, running.
Ooh, running. Oh yeah, yeah. Running.
Yes, I'm runnin'. (Yes, I'm runnin', Yes I'm runnin'.)
Yes, I'm runnin'. (Yes, I'm runnin', yes, I'm runnin'.)
Yes, we're runnin'. (Yes, we're runnin', yes, we're runnin'.)

[Chorus]
The longer you walk, the faster I run,
I'll be winning the race now, while I jump the gun.
I'm running faster, and faster, and faster with no time for fun,
The longer you walk, the faster I run.

[Chorus]
The longer you walk, the faster I run,
I'll be winning the race now, while I jump the gun.
I'm running faster, and faster, and faster with no time for fun,
The longer you walk, the faster I run.
He'd win this track in no time at all. See you at the outdoor track.
