"Band On The Run"

(As recorded by Paul McCartney & Wings)
PAUL McCARTNEY
LINDA McCARTNEY

Stuck inside these four walls
Sent inside forever
Never seeing no one, nice again
Like you, mama, you, mama, you.

If I ever get out of here
Thought of giving it all away
Too registered charity
All I need is a pint today if I ever get out of here
(If we ever get out of here).

Well, the rain exploded with a mighty crash
As we fell into the sun
And the first one said to the second one there
"I hope you're having fun."

Band on the run, band on the run
And the jailer man and sailor Sam
We're searching ev'ryone
For the band on the run, band on the run
Band on the run, band on the run.

Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh
Seeing no one else had come
And a bell was ringing in the village square
For the rabbits on the run.

Band on the run, band on the run
And the jailer man and sailor Sam
Were searching ev'ryone
For the band on the run, band on the run
Band on the run, band on the run.

Well the night was falling as the desert world
Began to settle down
In the town they're searching for us ev'rywhere
But we never will be found.

Band on the run, band on the run
And the county judge, who held a grudge
Will search for evermore
For the band on the run, band on the run
Band on the run, band on the run.
