A Little Bit Late lyrics

They repossessed my car, I said , "I'll get it back again..... I'll fight those
finance people to the end."
"Here's my delinquent payment, and I'll give you some to boot,"
"Now gimme back my car and take my loot!"
They said, "I think you're just a little bit late..... We can't mess around
while you procrastinate!"
"We auctioned off your car..Well, you know, that's the way we are... Sorry,
you're a little too late!"

So then I had to catch the city bus to get to work on time, missed the one at
eight, had to take the one at nine.
I finally got to work about a quarter after ten,
And I went to tell the foreman where I'd been.......
He said, "I think you're just a little bit late.... and fella, that's the kind
of thing I hate."
"I don't want to make you sore, but we can't use you anymore.... Sorry, you're a
little too late!"

Then my wife packed up and left.... I said, "She can't do that to me!"
"I guess I'll have to show her what a lover I can be!"
So I bought a dozen roses and I said, "Baby, please come home! Your lover boy
can't stand to be alone!"
She said, "I think you're just a little bit late...... You see, I went and found
myself another mate!"
"He's handsomer than you, he's got a car..... he's working too! Sorry, you're a
little too late!"

Well after the divorce, I ended up without a dime..... As you can see, I was
forced to live a life of sin and crime.
I gambled and I plundered...... I smoked and cursed and drank....
I even tried to rob the local bank!
They said, "I think you're just a little bit late. See there's nothing in our
vault for you to take."
"You're the second crook today, the other robber got away! Sorry, you're a
little too late!"

Now the time I've spent in jail has made me see where I was wrong......
I decided to repent and take it easy from now on.
But when I die and climb those golden stairs on Judgement Day..... Saint
Peter'll probably look at me and say,
"I think you're just a little bit late. See, we're all full up right now, you'll
have to wait."
"Why don't you go on down below....... if something breaks, we'll let you know."

"Sorry, you're a little too late!"
