The Lyrics

This is a song about how running can be a fun experience. Amby Burfoot on Runner's world does an article on the runner's high which is caused by the brain producing endocannabinoids that relax a person while running making running fun. At the top of the article Burfoot is pictured as if she's running in the sky. Running has been said by some to help people recover from drug addiction.

I'm running, that endorphin keeps sendin me straight to heaven.
Keep runnin and that endporphin will be sendin ya straight to heaven. (2X)

Buddah runners, bout to bring our message to ya.
Endorphin rush is coming at me baby.
Runnin really makes me happy baby.
The runners high's so much fun like tetrahydro.
Baby the runner's high's so much fun like tetrahydro.

The runner's high's so fun like tetrahydro. (4X)

Sometimes people wonder.
They ask why me a runner.
I tell em bout the runner's high.
They wonder why so runner's high.
They wonder why so runner's high. (2X)

Sometimes people wonder.
Why do ya run?
Why do ya run?
They ask why me a runner.
Cause runnin's run.
Cause runnin's fun. (2X)

I gotta go run.
Gotta go have me my fun.
Never quit til my life's done.
I'm pumped up.
Endorphin's really got me buzzed.
That's because. (2X)

Keep runnin have me fun and runner's fun's number one. (4X)

Nothin beats endorphin in me.
I'm wired to run.
Then they fire the gun.
Now I'm high as the sun.
That's thrice as much fun.

Nothin beats endorphin in me.
I love gettin fired up to hip hop.
And when I get tired out do cliff shot, it's hot.

Fellas wonder why me a runner.
Gotta tell em bout the runner's high, the greatest wonder.

Baby our message is comin to ya. We don't really want to preach.
But if ya want we'll teach ya bout the runner's buddah.
You don't have to ever pay a fee cause every day it's free.

Nothin beats endorphin in me. (2X)

(repeat chorus)

If ya want to learn to run just come on with me son.
These are our rules.
Lace up our shoes.
Take our carb juice.
Spirits are loose.

It's a Z thang how a fella like me run and remain.
How a fella like me run and remain high as the sun.
The original Buddah Lovaz song written Bone, Thugs and Harmony can be found on You Tube.

I guess it's getting harder and harder for a noob to get noticed here unless he/she is going for dead funny comedy parodies straight away (not that I'm a better judge than anyone else in that matter), still, like I told you before when I suggested that you should post this here, it reads very well, scans pretty well, and as a fellow runner I can relate to the subject.

Peter seems like a self important blow hard.

In the short time I have been writing at amiright I have learned a lot. I have learned that the more funny you are the more recognition that you get. However my purpose in writing this and 4 Runners Only was to express my feelings on how much I love running. I admit my songs aren't the funniest. After all, music is about people talking about their own personal experiences, pleasures as well as other things. I am grateful to have found amiright just to have a chance to show my writing talent. I have also learned about the 1 GUY issue where people give 111 votes in avery category. I really don't object to any of that but if you are going to be a 1 GUY I think the least you could do is give specific reasons why the parody gets 1 in every category. Otherwise the 1 GUY comes across as a troll looking to make trouble and nothing more.

What happened to the 'Poetic Runners'
Nick Zeman - April 17, 2009 - Report this comment
This was the first song that I wrote. I didn't know how to structure this song lyrically as there were so many overlappings in this song by the Bone Members. After that I was able to read the original lyrics better and in my subsequent songs I structured Poetic Runner #1 after Wish Bone, Poetic Runner #2 after Krayzie Bone ,Poetic Runner #3 after Layzie Bone, Poetic Runner #4 after Bizzy Bone and Poetic Runner #5 after Flesh N Bone. I am eventually going to resubmit this parody under me and the Poetic Runners as I now have 9 songs out. Even better news I gave the lyrics to my one song 4 Runners Only and he thought the lyrics were great and he wants to talk to me about recording.

Oops, my bad, I shoulda looked at the dates on the comments. I gave you 5's across. I think Nick Zeman and the Poetics Runners is a great sounding name for a band. I'm not a runner, but I have friends who are, so I know where you're coming from. It would be good if you could expand out to other themes, but if you're stuck on running themes, you should do a search on original songs that have "run" in their titles and work on parodies of them. There are scads of possibilities there.

If I get other ideas on other themes I am going to switch my name to something else. The thing is Bone raps constantly about weed in their songs and I find it fascinating how people can keep repackaging things to make so many songs about the same thing. What I am going to do is look into other areas of running besides the runner's high. I mean I already have 9 songs about the runner's high and I could add many more on one album that don't pertain to it. If you click in the Bone Thugs and Harmony icon with the purple line above it you will see a link to all my songs. Thanks for voting and commenting.
