My Little Runaway

Lyrics

I met a boy on the street the other day
He was walkin' all around out in West L.A.
He showed me a picture - "Have you seen this girl?
She's the dearest thing in the whole wide world

It doesn't seem so very long ago
We listened to Del Shannon on the stereo
I never thought it would be my turn to say
'Has anybody seen my little runaway?'

She was too pretty for her own good
Said, 'I'm gonna make it out there in Hollywood
A man said he would make me a star
I'll be comin' back home in a big white car'

And people like to say they knew
That she'd go wrong, but that's not true
Everything they know is just hearsay
Has anybody seen my little runaway?
My little run run run run runaway

She went out there and they used her up
They threw her aside like a broken cup
Poor baby, she's gone gone gone
Walkin' the streets with her eyeshadow on"

He said, "Darlin', if you hear my plea
Will you please come runnin' back to me?
Don't stay out in that cold world alone
Do you hear us callin', 'Baby, please come home'?"

I left the boy on the the streets that day
He was walkin' all around out in West L.A.
And if I listen, I can still hear him say
"Has anybody seen my little runaway?
My little run run run run runaway"
