"Little Time Bomb" as written by and Billy Bragg....
One of them's off her foot
And the other one's off his head
And both of them are off down the boozer
To drink a toast
To the one that he hates most
And she says there are no winners, only losers
Well if there are no winners
Then what is this he thinks
As he watches her complete a lap of honor
And he sits in the stands with his head in his hands
And he thinks of all the things
He'd like to bring down upon her
Revenge will bring cold comfort in this darkest hour
As the jukebox says 'It's All Over Now'
And he stands and he screams
What have I done wrong
I've fallen in love with a little time bomb
In public he's such a man
He's punching at the walls with his bare and bloody hands
He's screaming and shouting and acting crazy
But at home he sits alone and he cries like a baby
He holds your letters but he can't read them
As he fights this loneliness that you call freedom
You said this would happen and you were not wrong
I've fallen in love with a little time bomb

    Little Time Bomb

    One of them's off her food
    And the other one's off his head
    And both of them are off down the boozer
    To drink a toast
    To the one that he hates most
    And she says there are no winners, only losers

    Well if there are no winners
    Then what is this he thinks
    As he watches her complete a lap of honour
    And he sits in the stands With his head in his hands
    And he thinks of all the things
    He'd like to bring down upon her

    Revenge will bring cold comfort in this darkest hour
    As the juke box says 'It's All Over Now'
    And he stands and he screams
    What have I done wrong
    I've fallen in love with a little time bomb

    In public he's such a man
    He's punching at the walls with his bare and bloody hands
    He's screaming and shouting and acting crazy
    But at home he sits alone and he cries like a baby

    He holds your letters but he can't read them
    As he fights this loneliness that you call freedom
    You said this would happen and you were not wrong
    I've fallen in love with a little time bomb

    TranslationOff her head = mad
    Off down the boozer = going to the pub.

    It's All Over Now - most likely the Bobby Womack song famously covered by the Rolling Stones
