"Run for Your Life" is a song by English rock band the Beatles. It was first released on their 1965 album Rubber Soul.[3] It was mainly written by John Lennon, but listed as Lennon-McCartney. The song is about jealousy towards a woman, with the first line of the song being "I'd rather see you dead, little girl, than to be with another man". This was taken from the Elvis Presley song "Baby Let's Play House".[4][3] Lennon said that he did not like the song.[5]
