IT'S LATE
(D.Burnette)
DORSEY BURNETTE (Liberty)

It's late, we gotta get on home
It's late, we been gone too long
Too bad, we should have checked our time
Can't phone, we done spent every dime
It's late, we got to run out of gas
It's late, we gotta get home fast
Can't speed, we're in a slowdown-zone
Baby look at that clock why can't it be wrong
We could have left home at a quarter to nine
We would have had fun and plenty of time
But we got started just a little bit late
I hope this won't be our last date
Look up, is that the moon we see
Can't be, looks like that sun to me
It's late, I hate to face your dad
Too bad, I know he's gonna be mad
It's late, we gotta get on home
It's late, we been gone too long
