Well now, meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
Well now, meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
Well I'll come out the window, baby, I ain't got no time to lose

Well I hope you see me coming when I come streaking by
Well I hope you see me coming when I come streaking by
Well I (...) man, you know, I'm too young to die

All right


When you see me streaking by, please don't be late
When you see me streaking by, please don't be late
Well you see me coming, baby, you know my life is at stake


All right, baby

Well now, meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
Well now, meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
Well, I'll come out the window, baby, I ain't got no time to lose
