Cock Sparrer - Too Late Lyrics




Day after day fingers to the bone
To earn another pound, to pay another loan
Face to the grindstone, neck on the line
Killing himself, just to pass time
Hour after hour, watching the clock
Grafting hard with his head on the block
Loyal to the end, the old school way
But it counts for nothing nowadays

We'll all look back in the future
At where it all went wrong
We'll all sit around arguing
About people now long gone
We'll all have the answers over a pint
And opinions to debate
But there's not a lot of point in talking about it
By then it will be too late

They closed down the factory it's cheaper abroad
Fat cats paid so they couldn't afford
To put food on the table of the family man
Forty years service, no pension plan
His life's on hold, his shattered dreams
Empty thoughts and what might have beens
No money, no future, no work, no hope
No chance to think, he just couldn't cope

We'll all look back in the future
At where it all went wrong
We'll all sit around arguing
About people now long gone
We'll all have the answers over a pint
And opinions to debate
But there's not a lot of point in talking about it
By then it will be too late

Tomorrow will be too late [x4]
To be waiting at the factory gate

Said we'll all look back in the future
At where it all went wrong
We'll all sit around arguing
About people now long gone
We'll all have the answers over a pint
And opinions to debate
But there's not a lot of point in talking about it
By then it will be too late

  1. Jonathan Moore

    Excellent album. It comes within a hair's breadth of being as good as Shock Troops. Absolute top quality, without a single weak track.

    My personal fav's are "Did You Have A Nice Life Without Me?", "Spirit of 76" and "Suicide Girls".

    That pretty much sums up the talk I had with homeless Shane at South Kensington Underground, way hot in the City, no shoes, nothing to eat, sitting there asking for help in a humble, non aggressive way. A decent staunch character coping with life, we shared fags and water and had an interesting talk about the system, both England and Germany.
