Well baby, better take my advice
A black cat crossed your path twice
The moon came out next to the sun
And you opened your umbrella in a room

[chorus]
           G    C    G     F (E F)
You better run, run, run
Run, run, run
Run, run, run
Run, run, run

Well you ain't the luckiest girl I know
And you won't get luckier the way you're going
Your horseshoe's rusty and your mirror's cracked
You walk under ladders then you walk right back

[repeat chorus]
You better run, run, run (pack up your things and go)
Run, run, run (you better be leavin')
Run, run, run (you better go)
Run, run, run

I hope you believe what I say is true
Whenever you run, I'll be running, too
Whenever you run, I'll be following you
