Run Away! [Song]

RUN AWAY!
By Singing Francine

Spoken: Every two seconds there is abuse of spouse, battered housewives in the streets and the homes. I have one solution and it's the only solution if you can't agree to disagree. Otherwise they will read on their tombstone "Returned if possible." The name of my song is entitled "Run Away!"

You went and you put gold ring on she hand [La la-la la la la]
You boasting in town that you is she man [La la-la la la la]
She say that you love she, bursting with joy,
She give you a baby boy.
Little did she know you wanted a maid [La la-la la la la]
Your next lady friend couldn't make the grade [La la-la la la la]
Now she sit down and wondering what to do
How to get away, how to get away, how to get away from you!

Chorus:
Dog does run away, fowl does run away
Lady, cat does run away when you treating them bad
Hog does run away, cow does run away
What happen to you? Woman you could run away too!

Get out! Down the road! Don't turn back! Run!!!

You went and you put gold teeth in she mouth [La la-la la la la]
As allyuh get vex, you cra---ing it out [La la-la la la la]
You making she shame all over the place
Man, you is damn disgrace!
Not even to church now, she cannot go [La la-la la la la]
She beg for lil love, you telling she, "No." [La la-la la la la]
She frighten like hell to make up a plan
How to get away, how to get away, how to get away from you!

Chorus:
Hog does run away, cow does run away
Lady, cat does run away when man treating them bad
Hog does run away, cat does run away
Don't sit down and screel, woman put two wheels on your heels!

Get out! Down the road! And don't turn back! Run!!! Take your child and run! Back to Mooma! Back to Poopa!

It ent easy to be a battered wife [La la-la la la la]
And getting abused the rest of your life [La la-la la la la]
When family come you does have to smile
And pretend that he so nice.
When he drink and drunk well now he turn beast [La la-la la la la]
You does have to wonder if he kill priest [La la-la la la la]
Is licks left and right and all in your head
Woman run away, look, woman run away away, run away before he kill you dead!

Chorus:
Dog does run away, cow does run away
Lady, cat does run away when man treating them bad
Hog does run away, duck does run away
What happen to you? Woman you could run away too!

Get out!

Spoken:
Now this verse, this verse that's coming up is for all the men, all the men that's listening. This is a serious matter. Listen!

If you know you don't treat your woman nice [La la-la la la la]
Start checking up now, you take my advice [La la-la la la la]
Don't let she have cause to fly out the coop
Woman never run from good. No, no, no, no!
When she give you food, just tell she it sweet [La la-la la la la]
Hold the lady hand when she cross the street [La la-la la la la]
Just do as I say, handle she with care
And she'd never run away, she would never run away, she would never run away from you!

Chorus:
Because dog does run away, hog does run away
Jackass does run away when man treating them bad
Cat does run away, them dog does run away
Don't sit down and screel, she would put two wheels on she heels.

She would get out! She go run! Back to Mooma! She go run! Back to Poopa!
"Come doudodu, you is mih daughter. You know I love you.
Come doudou, take yuh child and....
"

A Note From The Gull


Thank you, Singing Francine. Excellent advice! My mother loved this song and she would have given this advice to her own children. However, there are other "Moomas and Poopas" who are part of the problem and actually advise their battered daughters to return to their husbands, even when these men have received no counselling and there is no guarantee that the violence will not continue to escalate. "You cannot leave your husband," they argue. "Marriage is a serious thing." So even when it becomes deadly serious, some of these parents forget that their first duty is towards their children and defending their safety, not propping up some social convention for the sake of tradition or keeping up appearances.

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
