Sorry I can't find any lyrics for that song either. I know the band up to "Freeways" and that's all.

I did a bit of searching and can't seem to find anything either with a "BTO" search or a "Randy Bachman" search. *shrug*

Yeah, just saw that...from LyricsFreak.

The new album, simply titled Bachman?Turner Overdrive, was released in 1984 on Charlie Fach?s new Compleat label. Billy Chapman, their drum tech, contributed keyboards to their stage shows. Chapman later became the drummer for Randy Bachman's band and drummed on Randy's solo album Any Road. In 1986 they released a live album culled from their 1985 tour called Live! Live! Live! which featured two new tracks, "Bad News Travels Fast" and "Fragile Man." Fragile Man was actually a studio recording with the audience sound added to it. A studio version of "Bad News Travels Fast" was released on the soundtrack for the movie Body Slam. They were the opening band for the new Sammy Hagar-fronted Van Halen on their 5150 tour in 1986. This plum opening slot was done by a trio lineup of Randy, Tim, and Garry Peterson (with bass parts and Fred's voice recorded) since Fred Turner had been unavailable when the group was first contacted by Van Halen?s management. Chapman later stepped in as drummer for Peterson after the latter severely injured his leg while playing softball during the group?s downtime on the road.

Here you go:


BAD NEWS TRAVELS FAST

Done everything, been everywhere
when trouble comes lookin' I'm waitin' there
been done wrong, been confused
the last thing I wanted was to be abused
I thought that I could change my ways somehow
Bad news travels fast and it's got me now
I thought I could undo the things I'd done
Bad news travels fast and I'm on the run

Bad news travels fast
Bad news travels fast
I'm on the run again
Bad news travels fast

Tried to run, tried to hide
'cause somethin's always pushin' me from inside
prayed for luck, hoped to win
but when the dice rolled you know I lose again
I thought that I could change my ways somehow
Bad news travels fast and it's got me now
I thought I could undo the things I'd done
Bad news travels fast and I'm on the run

Bad news travels fast
Bad news travels fast
I'm on the run again
Bad news travels fast

Done everything, been everywhere
when trouble comes lookin' I'm waitin' there
been done wrong, been confused
the last thing I wanted was to be abused
I thought that I could change my ways somehow
Bad news travels fast and it's got me now
I thought I could undo the things I'd done
Bad news travels fast and I'm on the run

Bad news travels fast
Bad news travels fast
I'm on the run again
Bad news travels fast

Bad news travels fast...
