Time's Up

Time's Up

Buzzcocks

I been waiting in the supermarket
Standing in line with the beans (cash up)
I been waiting at the post office
For sticky pictures of the queen (stick up)
And now I'm waiting for you
To get yourself good 'n ready (make up)
Thinking to myself is this what they mean
By going steady? (break up)
I been waiting in the waiting room
And I've been sitting in the sitting room
And now I'm whining in the dining room
Waiting for you's like waiting for the man in the moon

I was really smoldering
Seen the back of forty king size cigarettes (stood up)
This hanging on is murder
But if you'd just come along I'd have no regrets (give up)
And so I'd phone your number
And your mother tells me you're still in bed (get up)
When you come to the phone your voice is thick and sexy
Goes straight to my head (shut up)
And I been standing in the standing room
And I been smoking in the smoking room
And now I'm dying in the living room
I'm gonna forget what I came for here real soon

Your time's up and me too
I'm out on account of you

I was really burned out and smoldering
Seen the front and back of eighty king size cigarettes (stood up)
This hanging on is killing me
If you'd just creep along I'd have no regrets (give up)
And so I phone your grandmother
She says you're still in bed (get up)
When you get to the phone your voice is thick and sexy
Shoots through the top of my head (shut up)
I been standing in the standing room
I been smoking in the smoking room
Now I'm dying in the living room
I'm gonna forget what I came for here real soon

Your time's up
