Pumped Up Kicks

Lyrics

playRobert's got a quick hand
playHe'll look around the room
playHe won't tell you his plan
playHe's got a rolled cigarette
playHanging out his mouth
playHe's a cowboy kid

playYeah he found a six-shooter gun
playIn his dad's closet,
playin the box of fun things
playI don't even know what
playBut he's coming for you,
playyeah he's coming for you

playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playOutrun my gun
playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playFaster than my bullet

playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playOutrun my gun
playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playFaster than my bullet

playDaddy works a long day
playHe be coming home late,
playand he's coming home late
playAnd he's bringing me a surprise
play'Cause dinner's in the kitchen
playand it's packed in ice

playI've waited for a long time
playYeah the sleight of my hand
playis now a quick-pull trigger
playI reason with my cigarette
playThen say, "Your hair's on fire,
playyou must've lost your wits, yeah?"

playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playOutrun my gun
playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playFaster than my bullet

playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playOutrun my gun
playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playFaster than my bullet

playRun, run, run, run, ru-ru-ru-run, run, run
playRu-ru-ru-run, run, run, run
playRu-ru-ru-run, run, run, run, run, run

playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playOutrun my gun
playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playFaster than my bullet

playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playOutrun my gun
playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playFaster than my bullet

playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playOutrun my gun
playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playFaster than my bullet

playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playOutrun my gun
playAll the other kids with the pumped up kicks
playYou better run, better run,
playFaster than my bullet
