She's On Time

Songfacts®:

  • Written by Steven Page and Ed Robertson with lead vocals from Page, this song is about a guy whose girlfriend tells him she's late for her period and might be pregnant. This scares the hell out of him, but then she tells him she's "on time" and he celebrates like a Jerry Springer Show guest who finds out the kid isn't his.
