Late Again Lyrics - Nellie McKay

Review The Song (0)



Well, I opened my eyes
It was almost three, so I walked my little dog in the nursery
I took a little shower, and I put up my hair and pants
So I quickly did my eyelash, applicate
Put some extra for my doggy in the doggy tray
Said: "Hey, now, what am I forgetting?"
Made a little promise to you, and I'm late again!

Well, I got the corner, and I realised
I'd forgot my lunch
I'd forgot my fries
I'd forgot to make my bed and mend my hair
So I ran upstairs with my tambourine
And spent a few minutes with the Lauder in
The fridge said: "Shouldn't you be getting?"
Made a little promise to you, and I'm late again!

I know each night you're waiting there
Well, you begin to curse
Begging me why each and every time
But I beg you to forgive me
If you only knew my nerves, you would see I'm tryin'

So I got to the big train, running fast
When I realised I forgot my cash
But I had a card, so I hopped to the machine
When I got on board, I said that was that
Then the conductor said: "Fire on track!"
If I hadn't been for that delay, I'm guessing
Made a little promise to you, and I'm late again!

Well, we finally got off to the street
There was a huge ass valley
And who should I meet but a man who said he used to be Howard Dean
Well, we got some coffee
And I picked a spray
I said: "I know you're waiting, but what can I say?"
Said: "I'll see you next week in Trenton."
Made a little promise to you, and I'm late again!

I know each night you're waiting there
The tears begin to start, begging me why each and every time
But I beg to forgive me
If you only knew my heart, you would see I'm tryin'

Well, around the corner, and there you are
And I'll it right quick: I got hit by a car
I barely escaped my life
How are you, friend?
But you looked right through me, and turned away
As you're walking off, I can hear you say:
I hope you spend your life regretting
Made a little promise to me, and you're late again
You're late again

I'm late again!
Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah!
