"Take the Money and Run" is a song recorded in 1976 by the Steve Miller Band. A song about two young (possibly teenage) bandits and the police officer pursuing them, it was one of the many hit singles produced by the Steve Miller Band in the 1970s and featured on Fly Like an Eagle. The song peaked at #11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and also charted well in Australia.

The two lines "They headed down to, ooh, old El Paso" and "Billie Mack is a detective down in Texas" are followed by claps in a manner similar to "Deep in the Heart of Texas". The difference is that "Deep in the Heart of Texas" has four claps and "Take the Money and Run" has five.

The song is about "Billy Joe and Bobby Sue", described in a similar manner to Bonnie and Clyde, who were from Dallas.
