   Run For Your Life
by John T. Marck



Run For Your Life

Written by Lennon, this was the first song recorded for Rubber Soul, and the last on the album because it was one of the songs he liked the least. Lennon had said that it was one of those songs he just "knocked off just for the sake of writing a song." Lennon got the idea of the first line from an Elvis Presley song from 1955 titled, "Baby, Let's Play House," with Lennon referring to this as an old Presley song, but it's origin dates back to 1954, when it was written in Nashville by Arthur Gunter. It was recorded on October 12, 1965.

Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl,

Than to be with another man

You better keep your head, little girl,

Or I won't know where I am

You better run for your life if you can, little girl

Hide your head in the sand little girl,

Catch you with another man

That's the end'a little girl

Well I know that I'm a wicked guy, and

I was born with a jealous mind

And I can't spend my whole life trying

Just to make you toe the line

You better run for your life if you can, little girl

Hide your head in the sand little girl,

Catch you with another man

That's the end'a little girl

Let this be a sermon I mean everything I've said

Baby, I'm determined and I'd rather see you dead

You better run for your life if you can, little girl

Hide your head in the sand little girl,

Catch you with another man

That's the end'a little girl

I'd rather see you dead, little girl,

Than to be with another man

You better keep your head, little girl,

Or I won't know where I am

You better run for your life if you can, little girl,

Hide your head in the sand little girl

Catch you with another man, that's the end'a little girl

Na, na, na, Na, na, na, Na, na, na, Na, na, na
