    ert's got a quick hand.
    He'll look around the room, he won't tell you his plan.
    He's got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he's a cowboy kid.
    Yeah, he found a six shooter gun.
    In his dad's closet hidden in a box of fun things, and I don't even know what.
    But he's coming for you, yeah he's coming for you.

    [Chorus: x2]
    All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun.
    All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

    Daddy works a long day.
    He be coming home late, yeah he's coming home late.
    And he's bringing me his dark surprise.
    'Cause dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice.
    I've waited for a long time.
    Yeah the sleight of my hand is now a quick-pull trigger,
    I reason with my cigarette,
    And say your hair's on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.

    [Chorus: x2]
    All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun.
    All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

    [Whistling]

    [Chorus: x3]
    All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun.
    All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

    just terrible

    Re: pancake4cupcake – I thank you for printing all the words. I still don't understand it 100% but last night every time I woke up I had this song going through my head. I'm very much anti-gun so it bothers me to have this song flowing through my head and dreams.
