There was a time when I would go walking backwards, round the world
If you said "you're mine!"
And I' s drun blindfold down the Kings Road, Monday morning,
If you just for once arrive on time.
But you turned into an other liar, And you came unlike a new Messiah.
So before you say what you desire, I'm telling you now...
I quit! I quit! Cause loving you's a job I don't need.
Ain't gonna go to work no more.
I quit! I quit! Your situation's vacant for me.
Ain't gonna go to work no more, ain't gonna go to work no more,
Ain't gonna go to work.
I got my hands dirty, while you rolled cigarettes,
With one eye on the time
I tried my hardest, I' ve been conscientious,
But I'm taking back that heart of mine.
You can't roll me round your tongue no more, baby.
It's time to clear up your emotional debris.
And if I'm falling overboard, please don't save me.
Cause I'm telling you now...
La da di di da di da di ...
Baby! La da di di da di.
It's too late to say you're sorry!!!!
You're just like every other lover;
a shot rings out and you go running for cover.
And I'm so sorry I can't be your mother.
And I'm telling you now...
