It was my great grandfather Seth Sykes, the Scottish evangelist and hymn writer, who wrote the lyrics of Running Over. His friend, William G. Hunter, saw the lyrics and wrote music for them. Please note, it's "my cup's filled and running over" not "my cup's full and running over".

Graham MacDougall

From (

"As a new member this is a short note to complete the information held by you on the above. "Running over" was an incredibly popular children`s chorus, but actually was part of a hymn written by Seth Sykes of Glasgow Scotland. His friend and fellow evangelist Rev William Gardner-Hunter saw the words and created the tune. It was published in Rev. Gardner-Hunter`s "Cross and Crown Melodies". Rev. Gardner-Hunter went to be with the Lord in 1973."

As a kid I thought the song was:

Running over, running over
My best friend's just been run over
And the Lord said to me
He's as happy as can be
My best friend's just been run over

It didn't make a great deal of sense to me, but the world seldom does when you're six years old.
