He said, "Thanks my friend,"
But he was too late
Oh why oh why
I don't know.

So you think things move
Pretty fast out here
But just wait my dear
Till you look up there
Oh maybe someday you'll know.

Had his second kid
Was an early night
Gotta be well dressed
'Cos he hates to fly
Oh loves his job
Takes it home.

Anything they wanted, they could have it
Have it.
Didn't even notice
I don't mind it
Mind it.

Won't decide but he won't debate
He said, "Thanks my friend,
thought that we was dead,"
Oh why oh why
I don't know.

Think things move
Pretty fast out here
But just wait my dear
Till we get up there
Oh maybe someday they'll know.

Come on tell me does she wander
Roam when he comes
Or does he just know how to leave
When it gets cold

I don't care
I don't care cos it's free.
