🎶 Running in the Day Light 🎶 (Toploader / King Harvest)

Last night, inspired by antet and Jancanrun I started a new playlist for my long run this morning. And what a good job. It was great to have some new tunes, and, just when the gremlins struck, Dancing in The Moonlight by King Harvest (covered by Toploader) came on and kept me going...

🎶

I put my kit out over night

When the moon is big and bright

It’s a supernatural delight

I’ll be running when it’s daylight.

🌙

Dogs with walkers in my sights

But they don’t bark and they don’t bite.

My shoes ain’t loose, my feet are light

When I’m running in the daylight.

🐕👟👟

Chorus

Running in the daylight,

I am feeling warm and bright.

The countryside’s a lovely sight,

As I’m running in the daylight.

☀️🏃🏽‍♀️ ☀️

The cows look on as I turn right,

I jump a ditch and stay upright.

I think I gave them quite a fright

I shout, "Sorry", I’m contrite.

🐄🐄🐄

Running up an incline slight

Hear a voice start to recite…

Is it a gremlin or a sprite?

But I find the strength to fight.

🏃🏽‍♀️😈👹👊

I speed past fields, this could be flight,

I am smiling with delight,

I run uphill, it’s quite a height,

But I’m nearly back it’s alright.

😄

Chorus

Running in the daylight,

I am feeling warm and bright.

The countryside’s a lovely sight,

I was running in the daylight.

☀️🏃🏽‍♀️ ☀️
