  • Steaks are getting cold on the table
    I've got the TV on to "That's Incredible"
    In the yellow oven is hot apple pie
    So why isn't he home on time?

    He's working late (He's working late)
    And there's nothing in the world you can do
    To bring him home to you
    When he says he's working late

    When we first moved in together he just couldn't wait
    To hold me in his arms, he'd never hesitate
    Talking words of love, making me feel like a little girl
    And now he's living in another world

    He's working late (He's working late)
    And there's nothing in the world you can do
    To bring him home to you
    When he says he's working late

    Do you give him all the love you can?
    Well, sometimes I guess I don't
    Do you think he's looking for something he can't find at home?
    Well, the more I wonder, the less I know

    I just got woken up by the TV set
    There ain't no more shows on and he ain't home yet
    I try to close my eyes and fool myself
    That he would never fall in love with someone else

    He's working late (He's working late)
    And there's nothing in the world you can do
    To bring him home to you
    When he says he's working late

    (He's working late)
    And there's nothing in the world you can do
    To bring him home to you
    When he says he's working late

    (He's working late)
    Oh, I know he's working
    (He's working late)
    Well, he just better be working late Writer/s: MARVIN ETZIONI
