The Lyrics

Somewhere in the distance I hear the train arrive
Should have been here mid-day, now it's ten to five
My lady cooked for me, it's waiting there at home
The passengers look hostile as I use my mobile phone

To say I'm too late, too late, too late
Too late for lunch
I'll be too late, too late, too late
Too late for lunch

Stomach is a-rumbling, afraid I'm being rude
A pocket with no money in, unable to buy food
And the Queen of the dream wants to hit the mall
If she don't get her shopping, I'm heading for a fall

But I'm too late, too late, too late
Too late for lunch
Yes I'm too late, too late, too late
Too late for lunch

Standing in the kitchen, I see a little note
"Dinner's in the oven" the only thing she wrote
And there's something on a tray, used to look like meat
But a blackened rock of charcoal is all that's left to eat

Because I'm too late, too late, too late
Too late for lunch
I was too late, too late, too late
Too late for lunch

This idea actually crossed my mind awhile back, but I never followed through on it. Decent job.

I was quite surprised nobody had - I checked before typing it up (I wrote it in the car driving in this morning), but it seemed such an obvious choice... I even did a Google search which turned up a parody from 2001 which was kinda lame. So I turned this one in anyway. It's a bit lightweight compared to some I've done recently, but I liked the last couplet...
