"Runnin" as written by and Pharrell Williams....
Summertime in Virginia was a oven (oven)
All the kids eating ice cream with their cousins (cousins)
I was studyin' while you was playing the dozens (dozens)
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't

Runnin' from the man (man) runnin' from the badge (badge)
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't
Runnin' toward our plans (plans) and the judges hands (hands)
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't

I know they say you crawl 'fore your walk
But in my mind I already jog
If I stand still I cannot get far
They want the Moon, I'm on Mars

Sometime my mind dives deep
When I'm runnin'
I don't want no free ride
I'm just sick and tired of runnin'
Some nights I cry
Cause I can see the day comin'
Together we'll fly
Oh, but no more runnin'

You and I are not different from each other (other)
Shut our eyes, when we slumber I see numbers (numbers)
Black and white, we're computers, I am colored (colored)
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't

From runnin' to exams (exams) to jobs for a man (man)
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't
In the law of the land (land) the women were often banned (banned)
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't

I know they say you crawl 'fore your walk
But in my mind I already jog
If I stand still I cannot get far
They want the Moon, I'm on Mars

Sometime my mind dives deep
When I'm runnin'
I don't want no free ride
I'm just sick and tired of runnin'
Some nights I cry
Cause I can see the day comin'
Together we fly
Oh, but no more runnin'

I know they say you crawl 'fore your walk
But in my mind I already jog
If I stand still I cannot get far
They want the Moon, I'm on Mars

Sometime my mind dives deep
When I'm runnin'
I don't want no free ride
I'm just sick and tired of runnin'
Some nights I cry
Cause I can see the day comin'
Together we fly
Oh, but no more runnin'
