What Would They Say

When I heard this Paul Williams song I knew I just had to be a songwriter!

 

"What Would They Say" featured in two movies "The Boy In The Plastic Bubble" in 1976 and "No Place To Run" in 1972 and on Paul Williams 1974 album "Here Comes Inspiration".

 

What would they say
If we up and ran away
From the roaring crowds
And the worn out city faces
Would they carry on and on
When they found out we were gone
Or would they let us go
Would they tag along
Or would they know to

Leave us alone
We'd live in the country
Leave us alone
We'd make it just fine
Happy in a one room shack
And we'd not look back
Now would we

What would they do
If they found out we were through
With all the little lies
And the downtown aggravations
That we'd traded them away
For a quiet country day
That we had hoped to share
Would they try to find out
Where we were or

Leave us alone
We'd live in the country
Leave us alone
We'd make it just fine
Happy in a one room shack
And we'd not look back
Now would we

What would they say
If we up and ran away
Ran away
