Nerina Pallot Real Late Starter Lyrics

sponsored links
I woke up late today
Actually I do that everyday
Got no place to be seen
I'm not part of a scene
I'm a genius loser
Keeping counsel with my own opinion
President of the state that I'm in
Should I just stay in bed?
Should I live in my head?
Oh God, so many questions to ask

Oh, you could call me lazy
I think of it as taking my time
‘Cos I don't want to do what I don't want to do
I'm the queen refusenik

But - oh my God – if I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God – if I was somebody you'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite – I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh well.

Day by day I wonder
If I will be torn asunder
By these things that I know that nobody else knows
Or maybe it's the drinking
I guess we should consult a Bible
Everybody needs a sign - or
Bless the birds and the bees
The flowers and trees
And blessed be the slacker

But - oh my God – if I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God – if I was somebody you'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite – I do this all of the time
I missed my calling in life

And you, must be having a laugh
Oh God – you're having a laugh
No point in worrying if my day's a disaster
Inside my little head I'm happy ever after
Yes I am

Oh my God – if I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God – if I was somebody you'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite
I missed my calling in life

Oh my God – if I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God – if I was somebody you'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite – I do this all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oooh – what of my life?
Yeah well.
