10i: Paul Rudd / Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney performs “Band on the Run”

…..Paul Rudd
…..Paul McCartney

Paul Rudd: Once again — Paul McCartney.

Paul McCartney: [ singing ] “Stuck inside these four walls, sent inside forever
Never seeing no one nice again like you
Mama you, mama you.

If I ever get out of here
Thought of giving it all away
To a registered charity
All I need is a pint a day
If I ever get out of here
(If we ever get out of here).

Well, the rain exploded with a mighty crash as we fell into the sun
And the first one said to the second one there: “I hope you’re having fun!”

Band on the run!
Band on the run!
And the jailer man and Sailor Sam were searching everyone
For the band on the run!
Band on the run!
Band on the run!
Band on the run!

Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh, seeing no one else had come!
And a bell was ringing in the Village Square for the rabbits on the run!

Band on the run!
Band on the run!
And the jailer man and Sailor Sam were searching every one
For the band on the run!
Band on the run!
Band on the run!
Band on the run!

Band on the run!
Band on the run!
Band on the run!
Band on the run!

Well, the night was falling as the desert world began to settle down
In the town they’re searching for us everywhere but we never will be found!

Band on the run!
Band on the run!

And the county judge, who held a grudge
Will search forevermore
For the band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run”

[ thunderous applause ]
