She's On Time

  • Woke up, I was on top of the world,
    There was a beautiful girl in the bed beside me.
    Rolled over, got a kiss on the ear, she said
    "Listen dear, there's a change inside me."

    Can't say how frightened I am,
    How unenlightened I am as I run for cover.
    Can't say how happy I am to be wrong.

    Chorus
    She's on time. (x5)
    Halleluiah, she's on time,

    And it's the safest time of the month (they say) for love.

    We move in a mysterious way
    'Ccause on some holidays I'd say we work harder.
    Not happy with a hug and a kiss,
    Although most of the time we go much much farther.

    We can't stop foolin around,
    On the bed
    On the ground
    On the bathroom counter
    We can't stop when all her systems are go.

    Chorus (x2)
    And it's the greatest time of the month for making love.

    Between you and me,
    How happy we'll be, repeating the cycle permanently.
    But where will we be when baby makes three?

    I know that in a couple of years,
    I might lay down my fears and get psyched about.
    Give in without an ounce of regret,
    Trying not to forget what I liked about it.

    One day I might look like a fool
    With a yard
    And a pool
    And a station wagon.
    Till then I get down on my knees everyday and pray.

    Chorus (x2)
    And it's the greatest time of the month for making love.

    She's on time (repeating)

  • Elrond47 from Hamilton, CanadaThis song is not, as it is listed, on the "Everything to Everyone" Album. It was actually a single, along with "Long Way Back Home" that ws omitted from the "Stunt" album for reasons that I am not aware of.
