It’s Late – Ricky Nelson

“It’s Late” Lyrics

It’s late (it’s late)
We gotta get on home
It’s late (it’s late)
We’ve been gone too long
Too bad (too bad)
We should a checked our time
Can’t phone (can’t phone)
We done spent every dime
It’s late (it’s late)
We’re ’bout to run outta gas
It’s late (it’s late)
We gotta get home fast
Can’t speed (can’t speed)
We’re in a slow-down zone
Baby, look at that clock, why can’t it be wrong?
If we could a left home at a quarter to nine
Would a had fun and plenty of time
We got started just a little bit late
Hope this won’t be our last date
Look up (look up)
Is that the moon we see?
Can’t be (can’t be)
Looks like the sun to me
It’s late (it’s late)
I hate to face your Dad
Too bad (too bad)
I know he’s gonna be mad
It’s late (it’s late)
We gotta get on home
It’s late (it’s late)
We’ve been gone too long
It’s late (it’s late)
We’re ’bout to run outta gas
It’s late (it’s late)
We gotta get home fast
Can’t speed (can’t speed)
We’re in a slow-down zone
Baby, look at that clock, why can’t it be wrong?
If we could a left home at a quarter to nine
Would a had fun and plenty of time
We got started just a little bit late
Hope this won’t be our last date
Look up (look up)
Is that the moon we see?
Can’t be (can’t be)
Looks like the sun to me

It’s late (it’s late)

I hate to face your Dad
Too bad (too bad)
I know he’s gonna be mad
It’s late (it’s late)
We gotta get on home
It’s late (it’s late)
We’ve been gone too long
(It’s late)
