Running Around

– I didn’t know where this song was going when I first started writing it. I like where it ended up. And I finally got to use one of my favorite lines – “youth is wasted on the young.” Ain’t it the truth?

My baby’s running around
Bare feet barely touch the ground
Faster, faster, all fall down
My baby’s running around

First she crept, then she crawled
Next she’s walking down the hall
Now she’s a human wrecking ball
My baby’s running around
She’s running around, running around (2x)

There’s a wild look in her eyes
A mix of terror with surprise
Plus a joy you can’t describe
My baby’s running around

Under tables, over chairs
She’s completely unaware
Of the dangers waiting there
My baby’s running around
She’s running around, running around (2x)

When she runs, she runs away
But in my heart we’ll always stay
Together, forever

Youth is wasted on the young
You can ask anyone
All in all, we’ve just begun
My baby’s running around

Off she goes, full speed ahead
How I wish she were back in bed
But I’ll be chasing her instead
My baby’s running around
She’s running around, running around (4x)
