"Let Him Run Wild" as written by Brian Douglas Wilson and Mike E. Love....
When I watched you walk with him
Tears filled my eyes
And when I heard you talk with him
I couldn't stand his lies
And now before he tries it
I hope you realize it girl

(Let him run wild)
(He don't care baby)
Let him run
(Let him run wild)
(He'll find out baby)
Let him run
(Let him run run run run wild baby)

(Guess you know I waited for you girl)
He'll do the same to other girls
That he did to you
Then one day he'll run in to one
That's gonna hurt him too
So before he makes you over
I'm gonna take you over

(Let him run wild)
(He don't care baby)
Let him run
(Let him run wild)
(He'll find out baby)
Let him run
(Let him run run run run wild baby)

(Guess you know I waited for you girl)
All the dreams you shared with him
You might as well forget
I know you need a truer love
And that's what you'll get
And now that you don't need him
Well he can have his freedom

(Let him run wild)
(He don't care baby)
Let him run
(Let him run wild)
(He'll find out baby)
Let him run
(Let him run run run run wild baby)
Let him run
(Let him run run run run wild baby)
Let him run
(Let him run run run run wild baby)
Let him run

    General CommentWhat a great song. One of the more underrated songs in the Boys' catalogue. I guess it's about a guy who really loves a girl and wants to be with her, but the problem is that the girl is drawn to another guy. Now, he doesn't tell the girl at first, but he knows that this guy is just the manipulative type who just wants to get with as many girls as possible and just uses his charm to lure them in, trick them into thinking he loves them, and then ditch them like yesterday's news. The narrator is confident that one day this guy will realize the errors of his ways, but that time is not now and this girl is not the one that's going to break his vicious cycle. We just have to let him run wild for now, and one day he will reach the same level of maturity that the narrator is at NOW. The guy apparently cheats on her or does something to hurt her without officially dumping her. The narrator then tells her that he knew this would happen all along, and that now that she finally has some way to see what the narrator means, she should leave the other guy and get with the narrator, since he's the one that truly loves her. And it'd be a perfect situation for everyone involved - the narrator and the girl find love, which is what they want, and the narrator can continue to run wild and continue his manipulative ways, which is what he wants... or is it?
