Lyrics verse 1:
MY GAL AND I,
WE HAD A FIGHT
AND I'M ALL BY MYSELF,
I GUESS SHE THINKS,
NOW THAT SHE'S GONE,
I'LL LAY
RIGHT ON THE SHELF
I'M GONNA SHOW HER
SHE'S ALL WRONG,
NO LONESOME STUFF
FOR MINE,
I WON'T SIT HOME,
ALL ALONE,
SHE'LL SOON FIND OUT
THAT I'M:

Chorus:
RUNNIN' WILD,
LOST CONTROL,
RUNNIN' WILD,
MIGHTY BOLD,
FEELIN' GAY,
RECKLESS TOO,
CARE FREE MIND
ALL THE TIME,
NEVER BLUE
ALWAYS GOIN'
DON'T KNOW WHERE,
ALWAYS SHOWIN',
I DON'T CARE
DON'T LOVE NOBODY,
IT'S NOT WORTHWHILE
ALL ALONE,
RUNNIN' WILD.

verse 2:
WHEN I FIRST MET
THAT GAL OF MINE,
IT SEEMED JUST LIKE A DREAM,
BUT WHEN SHE THOUGHT
SHE HAD ME RIGHT,
SHE STARTED ACTIN' MEAN
LIKE MARY
LED HER LITTLE LAMB,
SHE LED ME ALL THE TIME,
UNTIL THE WORM
HAD TO TURN,
THAT'S THE REASON I'M:

Chorus:
RUNNIN' WILD,
LOST CONTROL,
RUNNIN' WILD,
MIGHTY BOLD,
FEELIN' GAY,
RECKLESS TOO,
CARE FREE MIND
ALL THE TIME,
NEVER BLUE
ALWAYS GOIN'
DON'T KNOW WHERE,
ALWAYS SHOWIN',
I DON'T CARE
DON'T LOVE NOBODY,
IT'S NOT WORTHWHILE
ALL ALONE,
RUNNIN' WILD.

Patter:
NO GAL
WILL EVER MAKE A FOOL OF ME,
NO GAL!
I MEAN JUST WHAT I SAY
I AIN'T THE SIMPLETON
I USED TO BE,
WONDER HOW I GOT THAT WAY.

ONCE I WAS FULL OF SENTIMENT,
IT'S TRUE,
BUT NOW I GOT A CRUEL HEART
WITH ALL THAT OTHER FOOLISHNESS
I'M THROUGH,
GONNA PLAY THE VILLAIN PART.

Chorus:
RUNNIN' WILD,
LOST CONTROL,
RUNNIN' WILD,
MIGHTY BOLD,
FEELIN' GAY,
RECKLESS TOO,
CARE FREE MIND
ALL THE TIME,
NEVER BLUE
ALWAYS GOIN'
DON'T KNOW WHERE,
ALWAYS SHOWIN',
I DON'T CARE
DON'T LOVE NOBODY,
IT'S NOT WORTHWHILE
ALL ALONE,
RUNNIN' WILD.
