Gerry Rafferty — Late Again lyrics

Late again
When I get home you'll be waiting
Still you know there ain't no use in you complaining
I know that I can show some respect
Especially when I'm wrong
But when I get back I know you'll say
'You've been away too long. '

I wonder why I stay
When everybody's gone (yeah)
There's always something there
That keeps me hanging on.

Ooooh, la-la-la
Ooooh, la-la-la

I wonder why I stay
When everybody's gone (away)
There's always something there
That keeps me hanging on.

I know that I could show some respect
Especially when I'm wrong
Late again
When I get home you'll be waiting.
