lyrics

You're the tail and I'm the dog
I think you're giving me the runaround
Been your fool for too damn long
Cause you've been giving me the runaround
Now I'm too tired to be perspired about a true fine mama like you
Ease my mind, I'm not inclined to sit around and wonder what you do

You bought a trinket, let me think it
You're trying to buy some time
I got a notion, locomotion
Unless you can change my mind

I thought we'd work it out, but lets be realistic
I've had enough, the jig is up
My pride is worth much more than you suggested
I've had enough, the jig is up

I'm walk, walk, walk
Walk, walk, a-walkin
I'm walk, walk, walk
Walk, walk, a-walkin
I'm walk, walk, walk
Walk, walk, walkin away

You're the tail and I'm the dog
I think you're giving me the the runaround
The music business can break your heart
when they've been giving you the runaround
Now Mr. Owner, done put my soul to each and every single little note
You see this space? We packed the place. It's time for you to give us what we're owed

Pay me my, pay me my money
Oh pay me my, pay me my money
Oh pay me my, pay me my money, please
Pay me my, pay me my money
Oh pay me my, pay me my money
Oh pay me my, pay me my money, now

I thought we'd work it out, but lets be realistic
I've had enough, the jig is up
My pride is worth much more than you suggested
I've had enough, the jig is up

You pour your heart out
Just to get dogged out
Your spirit takes a toll
It can be sickening
But if you're listening
I hope you have found some soul

Now dip to the left
Shimmy to the right
Jerk real cool
Alright, alright

Dip to the left
Shimmy to the right
Now we could say goodbye
Or dance all night

The run, run, run, run,
run, run runaround
The run, run, run, run,
run, run runaround
