You played hooky from school
And you can't go out and play, yeah
Mama said, for the rest of the week
In your room, you gotta' stay, yeah

Now you feel like
The whole world's pickin' on you,
Temptations: Now you feel like
The whole world's pickin' on you
But deep down inside,
You know ain't true

You're on punishment
'Cause your mama wants to raise you the right way, yeah
But you don't care...
'Cause you already made up your mind
You wanna' run away, yeah
You're on your way....

Runaway child, runnin' wild
Runaway child, runnin' wild
You better go back home,
Better go back home,
Where you belong
Where you belong

You're roamin' through the city
Goin' nowhere fast,
You're on your own at last
Hey, it's getting late, where will you sleep?
Gettin' kind of hungry...
You forgot to bring somethin' to eat
Oh, lost with no money
You start to cry,
But remember, you left home
Wantin' to be grown,
So dry your weepin' eyes

Sirens screaming down neon-lighted streets,
You want your mama
All day lookin' for you...
You're frightened and confused
I want my mama
But she's much too far away,
She can't hear a word you say
Run, run, run

You heard some frightening news
On the radio,
About little boys runnin' away from home
And their parents don't see 'em no more
You want to stop and hitch a ride,
I know
But your mama told you never trust a stranger
And you don't know which way to go

The streets are dark and deserted,
Not a sound or sign of life, huh
Oh how you gonna' hear your mother's voice,
'Cause your lost and alone...
But remember you made this choice, oh

Runaway child, runnin' wild
You better go back home,
Where you belong...
Runaway child, runnin' wild
You better go back home,
Where you belong,
Your lost in this great big city,
You better go back home,
Where you belong
Huh, not one familiar face, ain't it a pity!!
Go back home, where you belong
Oh, runaway child, runnin' wild...
You better go back home,
Where you belong, oh yeah...

: Mama mama please, come on see about me
But she's much too far away,
She can't hear a word you say,
I want my mama
Whoa, you're frightened and confused,
Which way will you choose

Temptations: weaving in and out of music with ad libs for about 5 to 6 minutes

music(a long bridge)


Listen to your heartbeat
It's beating much too fast,
Go back home,
Where you belong

Repeat to fade while Eddies sings in background:
Oh hard head, ah-ha hard head,
Oh hard head, ah-ha hard head

fade to end
