Little Time Bomb
Billy Bragg Lyrics


One of them's off her foot
And the other one's off his head
And both of them are off down the boozer
To drink a toast
To the one that he hates most
And she says there are no winners, only losers
Well if there are no winners
Then what is this he thinks
As he watches her complete a lap of honor
And he sits in the stands with his head in his hands
And he thinks of all the things
He'd like to bring down upon her
Revenge will bring cold comfort in this darkest hour
As the jukebox says 'It's All Over Now'
And he stands and he screams
What have I done wrong
I've fallen in love with a little time bomb
In public he's such a man
He's punching at the walls with his bare and bloody hands
He's screaming and shouting and acting crazy
But at home he sits alone and he cries like a baby
He holds your letters but he can't read them
As he fights this loneliness that you call freedom
You said this would happen and you were not wrong
I've fallen in love with a little time bomb

[G]One of them's off her food and the [C]other one's off his [G]head
And [Em]both of them are [G]off down the [D]boozer
[C]To drink a [G]toast, to the [C]one that he hates [G]most
And she [Em]says there are no [G]winners, only [D]losers [G]

Well, if there are no [Em]winners, then [C]what is this he [G]thinks
As he [Em]watches her [G]complete a lap of [D]honor
[C]And he sits in the [G]stands, with his [C]head in his [G]hands
And he [Em]thinks of all the [G]things, he'd like to [D]bring down [G]upon her

Revenge will bring cold [Em]comfort in this [C]darkest [G]hour
As the jukebox [C]says 'It's All [D]Over [G]Now'
And he [Em]stands and he [G]screams, what have [C]I done [G]wrong
I've [D]fallen in [Em]love with a [C]little time [G]bomb
I've [D]fallen in [Em]love with a [C]little time [G]bomb

[C]In [G]public, [Am]he's such a [G]man
He's [C]punching at the [G]walls with his [Am]bare and bloody [G]hands
He's [C]screaming [G]shouting and [Am]acting [G]crazy
But at [C]home, he sits alone and he [D]cries like a baby

Oh, he [G]holds your [Em]letters but he [C]can't [G]read them
As he fights this [C]loneliness that [D]you call [G]freedom
You [Em]said this would [G]happen and you [C]were not [G]wrong
I've [D]fallen in [Em]love with a [C]little time [G]bomb
I've [D]fallen in [Em]love with a [C]little time [G]bomb

In public he’s such a man punching walls bare and bloody hands! I’ve seen Billy multiple times in concert and he never disappointed

Out of the blue this song just popped into my head, still remember all the words!
