  • I hear you had a good offer down on Third Avenue
    You tell me that was the reason
    For whatcha' put me through, yeah
    And now you come collapsin' back
    I feel the heat of your attack
    Want me to take you back
    I'm givin' you the sack
    So don't waste your time

    It's a little too little
    It's a little too late
    I'm a little too hurt
    And there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
    You can cry to me baby
    But there's only so much I can take
    Ah, it's a little too little
    It's a little too late

    You say you had a good time
    But did ya' think it was for free, yeah
    And how much did it get ya', all their flattery
    And now you come back, runnin' for protection
    You've been bitten by love and stung by rejection
    You can't connect
    What did you expect?
    I'm still gettin' over you

    It's a little too little
    It's a little too late
    I'm a little too hurt
    And there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
    You can cry to me baby
    But there's only so much I can take
    Ah, it's a little too little
    It's a little too late

    It's a little too little
    It's a little too late
    I'm a little too hurt
    And there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
    Well, you can cry to me baby
    But there's only so much, only so much I can take
    Ah, it's a little too little
    It's a little too late

    It's a little too little
    It's a little too late
    I'm a little too hurt
    And there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
    Well, you can cry to me baby
    'Cause there's only so much, only so much I can take
    Ah, it's a little too little
    It's a little too little
    It's a little too little
    It's a little too late Writer/s: ALEXANDER HUGHES CALL

  • Tvstevie from Princeton, NjThis has just become THE PERFECT song for Donald Trump!
  • Pat from St. Paul, MnGreat percussion on this song, especially the big drums at the beginning. And Pat's in full swagger mode in the video.
