It's Late
Ricky/Rick Nelson Lyrics


It's late (it's late)
We gotta get on home
It's late (it's late)
We've been gone too long

Too bad (too bad)
We should a checked our time
Can't phone (can't phone)
We done spent every dime
It's late (it's late)
We're 'bout to run outta gas
It's late (it's late)
We gotta get home fast

Can't speed (can't speed)
We're in a slow-down zone
Baby, look at that clock, why can't it be wrong?
If we could a left home at a quarter to nine

Would a had fun and plenty of time
We got started just a little bit late
Hope this won't be our last date
Look up (look up)

Is that the moon we see?
Can't be (can't be)
Looks like the sun to me
It's late (it's late)

I hate to face your Dad
Too bad (too bad)
I know he's gonna be mad
It's late (it's late)

We gotta get on home
It's late (it's late)
We've been gone too long

It's late (it's late)
We're 'bout to run outta gas
It's late (it's late)
We gotta get home fast

Can't speed (can't speed)
We're in a slow-down zone
Baby, look at that clock, why can't it be wrong?
If we could a left home at a quarter to nine

Would a had fun and plenty of time
We got started just a little bit late
Hope this won't be our last date
Look up (look up)

Is that the moon we see?
Can't be (can't be)
Looks like the sun to me
It's late (it's late)

I hate to face your Dad
Too bad (too bad)
I know he's gonna be mad
It's late (it's late)

We gotta get on home
It's late (it's late)
We've been gone too long
(It's late)

Still one of the coolest, short, simple, effective non ageing guitar solos

@voicegirl555 Thank you for that beautiful comment about Rick Nelson I still think he was a Fantastic Singer He was good in Rio Bravo Hard believe he was a child star Ozzie Harriet was on Radio DaysYou couldn't see them on the Radio acting Wow that was so long ago He's still missed

voicegirl555

@Rhonda Brogdon He died New Years Eve 1985. He was a terrific singer. Better than he was given credit for. He was a good actor too, but loved music more and didn't really work at his acting career. I do love him in Rio Bravo.

RICK Nelson Died New years Eve 1985 or died 1985 into 1986 I remember that night when it was on the news So sad I love his music He was a Fantastic singer!

Angela Carleton

I miss Ricky and his family. When David Nelson died of Cancer I cried to realized they are all gone.

Benwick

This song is only 1:30 and it tells a whole story. How does not even a little bit of this music still get made today. It's literally so well made.

Muffs 55mercury

He skipped a little. The 45 rpm version is a little over 2 minutes.
