"Way Too Long" as written by Elvis Costello, Thomas Edward Dinsdale and Simon Franks....
Nobody's been comin round your way
Have you been hearing wat they say?
They were your buddies yesterday
But you took too long to pay

Have you heard the latest news
about the cat that got slapped and bashed and bruised
Yeah, I wouldn't wanna be in his shoes
Now the kid's got fuckall to lose
broken friendships too hard to mention
ran round in venture
only invention
as we step from old to new
Andy knows we always wanted to check the things we do

All them kids who were your mates
You've let them sitting on their hate
When you're asleep or you're awake
You cannot hide from your mistake

Has he checked the fresh tickets?
get my fuckin money or you get my fuckin fist
personality switchin' twitchin
Like the girls in the springer show bitchin'
boy's in major shit now
Hasn't even got a little bit now
cuz he was out on the town
knockin drinks down
spendin all his money
and throwin it around

Nobody's been comin round your way
Have you been hearing wat they say?
They were your buddies yesterday
But you took way too long to pay

All them kids who were your mates
You've left them sitting on their hate
When you're asleep or you're awake
You cannot hide from your mistake

Have you seen where stevie's been?
Well, i've seen him round the way,
If you know wat i mean...
where?
well, he was at the club last night
drinkin with a girl and she looked a bit alright
What the fuck is he doin?
Spending all my money on a girl now im screwin
I only ticked him for a favour
and he pays me back with that kinda behaviour?

And that just seems to be the way things go down
just enjoyance to the point of no return
lets get paid tunes get played

And that just seems to be the way things go down
just enjoyance to the point of no return
lets get paid tunes get played

And that just seems to be the way things go down
just enjoyance to the point of no return
lets get paid tunes get played
