CROSS COUNTRY

Run for miles and miles, stopping for a moment
Others pass me by, looking fit and healthy
I’ll take a short cut on the cross-country
Make sure the mud don’t make my clothes dirty
I’ll take my time cos there’s no need to hurry
I’m taking my time

Run a half a mile, stopping for a breather
Think about a beer, oh my imagination
I’ll take a short cut on the cross-country
Make sure the mud don’t make my clothes dirty
I’ll take my time ‘cos there’s no need to hurry
I’m taking my time

Chorus

Sure got to get cross-country

Run another mile, rain has started pouring
How can I stay dry? I’m sure to think of something
I’ll take a short cut on the cross-country
Make sure the mud don’t make my clothes dirty
I’ll take my time ‘cos there’s no need to hurry
I’m taking my time

I’ve never been a smoker, don’t wanna be a choker
Feeling sick and laying helpless on the floor
I’ve never been a boozer, don’t wanna be a loser
You know I ‘take it easy’ that’s for sure

There's the finishing line, further in the distance
Stare them in the eye, try and look convincing
I’ll take a short cut on the cross-country
Make sure the mud don’t make my clothes dirty
I’ll take my time cos there’s no need to hurry
I’m taking my time
