Did He Run?


Did He Run?


Sheet Music


Tom Jones left his wife in the houses one night
And he started out for a walk
He met a pretty little blond
And with her began to talk talk talk
He took her into a sweet café
Ordered wine for the lady fair
He was making love when he looked above
His wife was standing there
Pete Green was a man with a lazy way
But as fleet of foot as a deer
Was entered in a ten mile race
On a circle track quite near near near
He was too lazy to start that night
So his manager said “oh prunes!”
Fire crackers he did a bunch you see
On Peter’s pantaloons
Did he run? Did he run?
When he got just one good look at her face
He acted like a runner in a marathon race
Did he run? Did he run?
He broke all records that I recall
For he made four miles in nothing at all
Did he run? Did he run?
Ran away so fast that in a short while
He lapped himself a couple times the very first mile
Did he run? Did he run?
He turned, ran the other way ‘round the track
Went so fast he met himself coming back
