Billy Joel She's Right On Time Lyrics

Last updated: 11/25/2007 10:00:00 AM

Turn on all the Christmas lights
Cause baby's coming home tonight
I can hear her footsteps in the street
Turn the choral music higher
Pile more wood upon the fire
That should make the atmosphere complete
I've had to wait forever
But better late than never

She's just in time for me
She's right on time
She's right where she should be
She's right on time

I'm a man with so much tension
Far too many sins to mention
She don't have to take it anymore
But since she said she's coming home
I've torn out all my telephones
Soon she will be walking through that door
I may be going nowhere
But I don't mind if she's there

She's just in time for me
She's right on time
She's right where she should be
She's right on time

Left to my own device
I can always make believe
That there's nothing wrong
Still I will choose to live
In the complicated world
That we shared for so long
Good or bad, right or wrong

And it occurred to me
While I set up my Christmas tree
She never missed a cue or lost a beat
Everytime I lost the meter
There she was when I would need her
Greeting me with footsteps in the street
I guess I should have known it
She'd find the perfect moment

She's just in time for me
She's right on time
She's right where she should be
She's right on time

Turn the choral music higher
Pile more wood upon the fire
That will make the atmosphere complete
I've had to wait forever
But better late than never

She's just in time for me
She's right on time
She's right where she should be
She's right on time
She's right on time
She's right on time

best song/best video | Reviewer: marko | 11/24/2007

I just saw this video on youtube- for the first time since I caught it on MTV in the mid eighties. This is bar none one of his best songs he ever wrote, and one of the funniest videos ever. I think it's probably so good because it never enjoyed commercial success. Too bad- the bst songs never get air.
