Run, Freedom, Run! lyrics

Album: Urinetown

Bobby
Run, freedom, run!
Freedom, run away!
My friends, you have to run run-a, run-a, run
Freedom, run away!
That freedom sun will shine someday
'Til then you better run run-a, run-a, run
Freedom, run away!

Tiny Tom
I'm frightened!

Bobby
Ooh, as well you should be. Freedom is scary. It's a blast of cool wind that
burns your face to wake you up.

Tiny Tom
Literally?

Bobby
Yes.
There's a trickle of sweat -

The Poor
There's a trick of sweat -

Bobby
Drippin' in your ear -

The Poor
Drippin' in your ear -

Bobby
But still, you gotta run run-a, run-a, run
Freedom, run away!

The Poor
Ah - run, run away!

Bobby
Now, don't you fret
And never fear!
'Til freedom's

Bobby and the Poor
Won, won-a, won-a, won

Bobby
Freedom, run away!

The Poor
Run, freedom, run!

Bobby
There's a great big Cladwell on your tail!

The Poor
Run, freedom, run!

Bobby
And he's put his henchmen on your trail!

The Poor
Run, freedom, run!

Bobby
I'm simply layin' out the facts for you
Great big Cladwell's makin' tracks for you
Ain't no time to relax for you

Bobby and the Poor
Run, freedom, run!

Bobby
Run, freedom, run!

The Poor
Run, freedom, run!
Run, freedom, run!

Bobby
Freedom, run away!

The Poor
Freedom, run away!
Freedom, run away!
My friends, you have to run run-a, run-a, run
Freedom, run away!
Freedom, run away -
Freedom, run away -
Freedom, run away!
That freedom sun
That freedom sun
Will shine someday!

Bobby
...Three four...

The Poor
'Til then you better
Run, run-a-freedom run
Run-a, run-a way!

Bobby
Run, freedom, run!
Freedom, run away!
My friends you
Have to run run-a, run-a, run
Freedom, run away! The Poor
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Ahh...

The Poor
Run, Hallelu!

Bobby
That freedom sun!

The Poor
Freedom sun!

Bobby
Will shine someday!

The Poor
Some sweet day!

Bobby and the Poor
'Til then you better
Run, run-a, run-a, run
Run-a, run-a run!
Hallelujah!

The Poor
Freedom, run!

Bobby
With the wind in your hair you'll run to freedom's glory!

The Poor
Freedom sun!

Bobby
That freedom sun will shine all over your freedom story
I said freedom -
I said freedom -
I said freedom, run away!

The Poor
Run, freedom, run!
Run, freedom!
Freedom, run away!
