Tik Tok Barefoot Girl Song

Ke$ha’s Tik Tok is a pop song celebrating what I was into when I was a teenager, so I can’t judge it. When I was 17 I would have been a huge Ke$ha fan. But now I’m into barefoot running and I wake up in my bed instead of the bathtub, and running races are my club scene, so I’ve tweaked the lyrics to reflect my new passion.

Even if you’re not into pop music, if you’re into barefoot running I think you’ll like the words.

This is an ode to all you barefoot runners out there!

Download the song to your favorite portable device from iTunes

Thanks to Molly for the singing, Stefan for the engineering and manly voice, and Princess for the meow.

Here are the words:

An Ode To Barefoot Running (to the tune of Tik Tok)

Wake up in the morning sayin’ hi to my kitty
(meow)
Got sun glasses I’m out the door I’m gonna hit this city
(run, barefoot girl!)
‘For I leave, grab some Nuun, and take a big crap,
‘Cause when I leave for a run I ain’t comin’ back.

I’m talking naked from heel to toe, toe
Wearing my favorite clothes, clothes
Taking on sand and snow, snow
Drop-topping, thinking about the Smileys
Vanessa, Patrick and Katie
Shelly, Krista and Angie

(Chorus)
Don’t stop at the top
Bare feet, take me up and up
Tonight, I’mma run
‘Til I’m having too much fun
Tick tock on the clock
But the running don’t stop, no

(Chorus)

Ain’t got a care in the world, I got plenty of cheer
Got inspiration in my pocket, I ran all the way here
And now, my goals are lining up and I’m really a snob
‘Cause I only want bare feet, like our friend Ken Bob.

I’m talking ’bout Nike is really sunk, sunk
The myths I’m going to debunk, bunk
Listen to Ted the Monk, Monk(ey)

Now, now, we go until the finish shout, shout
Or the Gu it runs right out, out
Gu it will run out, out
Gu don’t run out…

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

Bare Feet…
You build me up
You break me down
My heart, it pounds
Yeah, my bare feet

With my hands up
You got me now
You make me proud
Yeah, my bare feet

You build me up
You break me down
My heart, it pounds
Yeah, my bare feet

With my feet bare
With your feet bare
With your feet bare

Now, the party starts when you take off your shoes.

(Chorus)

(Chorus) (Laughter)

    Non itunes version? I don’t have an iPhone/iPod, but rather have everything on my android phone. Anybody selling/giving away a mp3 version? I’ll gladly pay.

      I haven’t forgotten your post on RunBarefootGirl.com asking for an MP3
      version of the Barefoot Running Tik Tok song! :)

      I added an MP3 link…

      http://runbarefootgirl.com/2011/08/tik-tok-barefoot-girl-song/

      but I’m clueless about whether or not you’ll be able to download it to
      your Android.

      Can you let me know… I should add MP3s to all my podcast pages if it
      works for you.

      Thanks!
