Music Monday

Music Monday (80s Edition): “Little Too Late” by Pat Benatar

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is pick a favorite song or video and share it on Mondays.

I’m back with another Music Monday after a prolonged absence, and as you can tell by the title of this post, I’m back to sharing music I loved when I was a kid. 🙂  I’m in the process of scheduling several Music Monday posts, and I hope that some of the songs I select will bring back some good memories for y’all! Today I’m sharing “Little Too Late”—one of my favorite Pat Benatar songs. She’s one of my favorite singers, so I’ll definitely be sharing more of her music in the future!

Lyrics:

I hear you had a good offer down on third avenue
You tell me that was the reason for whatcha’, you 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
Oh, 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’ and 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
Oh, 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
You can cry to me baby but there’s only so much I can take
Oh, 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
Oh, 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
Oh, it’s a little too little, it’s a little too little
It’s a little too little it’s a little too late
