Lyrics

Put on my new shoes
Laced them up
Tied 'em real tight
Used a double knot
One last stretch
Then to my mark, get set go
But I couldn't run
I couldn't run as fast as he could
I couldn't run
I couldn't run as fast as he could
Said with pride, give me one more shot
This time let's make it 'round the block
Took a deep breath
And when the gun went off I tried
But I couldn't run
I couldn't run as fast as he could
I couldn't run
I couldn't run as fast as he could
Used to ask for a race
Every chance I got
But maybe it's time
That the running stop
Last time I got a pretty good start
It was close
But I'll never run
I'll never run as fast as he could
I'll never run
I'll never run as fast as he could
