    Lyrics

    (Oney Wheeler - Tracey Lee)

    Now when the big bad wolf got in grandma's house
    A little Red Ridinghood was scared as the mouse
    And just like her I'm scared through and through
    Some two legged wolf would run away with you.

    So run 'em off no use to talk all day
    Just run 'em off they're tryin' to get you to play
    Run 'em off and make 'em let us be
    If you don't run 'em off I swear you're cheatin' on me.

    Now there's an iceman and milkman and folks out of town
    They don't come to visit they just hang around
    They act just as friendly as can be
    But I don't think they care a thing about me.

    So run 'em off don't talk too long
    Run 'em off so we can be alone
    Run 'em off and make 'em let us be
    If you don't run 'em off I swear you're cheatin' on me.

    --- Instrumental ---

    No matter where you are or what you do
    Folks start to whistle and how is you
    When they get too close I wanna say shoo
    Cause it looks like they wanna take what bother you.

    So run 'em off, don't talk too long
    You're gonna get in Dutch
    Run 'em off and make 'em let us be
    If you don't run 'em off I swear you're cheatin' on me.

    Now once I ended this song but I write so more
    Cause there's a half-a-dozen wolfs comin' up to my door
    And I can tell by a lookin' cause it's plain to see
    That they're not here to make eyes at me.

    So run 'em off don't talk too long
    You're gonna get in Dutch
    Run 'em off and make 'em let us be
    If you don't run 'em off I swear you're cheatin' on me...
