The Lyrics

As we all know, California governor Gray Davis has been subjected to a recall, and lots of candidates have come out to run for governor, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gary Coleman and Angelyne. I don't live in California. I live in West Virginia, where our governor should be recalled due to some hanky-panky. But at least he's not running for re-election. What a relief...
Gray Davis has been recalled
Gray, where you gonna hide?
A million candidates came out of the wall
Between all of them you must decide
Oh yeah
Oh yeah, I'm not one of those people
But you got them on your side
You don't have to worry
You just vote for one of those guys
Oh, ah
I know what it means to be governor
Of the state of California
But people...

(Chorus)
(I'm just not runnin', no, I'm just not runnin')
I'm just not runnin'
(I'm just not runnin', no, I'm just not runnin')
I'm just not runnin'
(I'm just not runnin', no, I'm just not runnin')
No, no
(I'm just not runnin', no, I'm just not runnin')

Oh, I don't wanna know
Why they want to throw him out
But why can't they keep him in office
Till the next election comes about?
Why is there a hurry
Who the next gov's gonna be?
Hey, yeah
But you don't even have to worry
'Cause you know it ain't gonna be me
Hey, yeah
But I know what it means to be governor
Of the state of California
Oh, God

(repeat chorus)

I'm just not runnin'
