Tortoise and the Hare
   ------Old Man Luedecke

I didn’t like the rat race
I ran away from there
Thought I was the tortoise
Turns out I’m the hate
I ran a rabbit race, came in last place
Ran a bear chase too
All of my running got me worn right through

Got a monkey on my back and a heart attack waiting on the finish line
I ran from competition, can’t blame a guy for trying

I tried to break free but silly me
The track goes round and round
Then like a mole I found a hole, I sought the underground
I root the mountain down
But pound for pound it ended up on me
Like a prisoner bound what I’ve found is I’m digging to be free

Got a monkey on my back and a heart attack waiting on the finish line
I ran from competition, can’t blame a guy for trying

Can’t blame a guy for trying
I think I could be free
I think that I’d go flying
If you would say to me
That you would walk with me

I’m a rabbit in a log hiding from the dog’s thinking about my soul
And you came in and with a grin said we’re staying in the hole
I love you well and know you’re true how long will we stay?
‘Til we rabbits outnumber them, then we’ll have our day”

Got a monkey on my back and a heart attack waiting on the finish line
I ran from competition, can’t blame a guy for trying
I ran from competition, can’t blame a guy for trying
