Roadrunner (Thrice) is the B-side of the single The Morning Of Our Lives (Beserkley BZZ 7, UK, 1977).

The car, the radio, the night - and rock's most thrilling song:

Lyrics:

One two three four five six
Roadrunner, roadrunner
Going faster miles an hour
Gonna drive past the Stop 'n' Shop
On a cold winter night

Feel in touch with the modern world
And I feel so lonely in the cold night
And I feel so lonley when it's late at night
Have the radio on
And feel like the roadrunner

Now I'm in love with my own lonliness
It doesn't bother me to feel so alone
At least I'm not staying alone at home
I'm out exploring the modern world
By the pine trees and the Howard Johnsons
On route 128 when it's late at night
We're heading from the north shore to the south shore
Well I see route 3 in my sight and
I'm the roadrunner

Well

And I say hello to the spirit of 1956
Patient in the bushes next to '57
The highway is my only girlfriend now as I drive by so quick
Suburban trees
And so it smells like heaven
And I say roadrunner once
Roadrunner twice
I'm in love with this feeling now and I'll be out all night
I'm a Roadrunner

Got the
(Radio On!)
I got the AM
(Radio On!)
I Got the AM, got the power
(Radio On!)
And I feel in touch with the world
(Radio On!)
As I drive by in the dark
(Radio On!)
Let's go down route 128

Now here we are by the industrial park
When it's late after dark

Well now
It's 20 degrees outside
It's cold
Put my head outside the window, roll it down
My hand's cold already

Well
I can see Boston now
I can see the Prudential tower
With the little red lights blinking on in the dark
I'm by Quincy now
I can see Deer island
I can see
Whole Boston harbour from where I am
out on the rocks by Cohasset
In the night

And I'm in love
With the land where I grew up
Well I'm in love
Well you might say I feel lonely
But I wouldn't say I feel lonely
I would say that I feel alive
All alone
cause I like this feeling
Of roaming around in the dark
And even though I'm alone out there
I don't mind
Cause I'm in love with the world

And I'm hypnotized
Get back in the car

And the rhythm of the engine
Hypnotized

I've been driving for 45 minutes
I've been driving for 2 hours
I've been driving for two and a half hours
But I'm hypnotized

Now here we are in western Massachusetts now
On interstate 90

The Mass Pike in other words

Heading out to Amherst and South Greensfield

Well the college out there just rises in the middle of nothing
You've just got fields of snow and all of a sudden there's these modern buildings
Right in the middle of nothing
Under the stars

Well
Roadrunner, roadrunner
Going faster miles an hour
Gonna drive by some Stop 'n' Shop
With the radio on for company
To feel in touch with the modern world
In Massachusetts when it's late at night
I love the neon when it's cold outside
But I don't feel so alone because I feel
Like the roadrunner

Now will you help me man

(Radio On!)
I got the AM
(Radio On!)
I Got the power, I got the magic
(Radio On!)
I'm in love, I'm in love
(Radio On!)
I'm in rockin modern love
(Radio On!)
I'm in love with the world
(Radio On!)
I'm alone but I'm in love
(Radio On!)
I'm in love with this feelin
(Radio On!)
When it's late a night
(Radio On!)
I'm in love with Massachusetts
(Radio On!)
When it's cold outside
(Radio On!)
Believe me now, believe me now

Bye bye!
