Running Up The Highway - Lyrics by Ufo


Lyrics

Quit my job at the 7-11
3-d vision and a glance of heaven
Picked up my six string began to play
Just one touch and it started to say

All your dreams will come true
Lovely mansion with a pool so blue
A red ferrari and a model for a wife
Oh yes it looks i was born for the good life

* running up the highway looking for something
Looking for something i can't see
Running up the highway looking for something
Looking for something i can't see

A thousand motels waiting to trash
Tv dinners, well i love that bash
And if you eddie, just say hi
This party's open so drop on by

All your dreams will come true
A sunny haven from the inland revenue
Hot nights in paris a chance to dance
Since i signed up i've been living in a trance

* repeat

[instrumental]

I'm feeling sick like dawn of the dead
I've got marines marching through my head
John-boy walton, he's so nice
So come in this must be paradise

All your dreams will come true
That lovely mansion with its pool so blue
A red ferrari and a model for a wife
Oh yes it looks i was born for the good life

* repeat
