Overtime

Got an apple shining in my eye
She’s my favourite little place to hide
But I can’t go on your bike ride
I got business on the other side
Why can’t it be just like it used to be?
Me and her and her and me
Something’s poisoning our apple tree
The fruit’s gone black but the shoots are green

But I’m too tired baby, stand in line
I’ve been busy working overtime
Take a number baby, stand in line
I’m too tired been working overtime

Just give me a minute baby, maybe two
Another minute ‘fore you say we’re through
You know I do it for the both of us
All the drinking’s so I can get lost
I’ll quit my job and I’ll return the key
We’ll build a better place to be
I’ll relax and we’ll pat the dogs
I promise you this ‘fore it’s gone

But I’m too tired baby, stand in line
I’ve been busy working overtime
Take a number baby, stand in line
I’m too tired been working overtime

Take a number baby, stand in line
Take a number baby, stand in line
Take a number baby, stand in line
Take a number baby, stand in line

Show me your number baby, cut the line
I’m so sick of working all the time
Show me your number baby, cut the line
Before I met you on the other side
Before we both say that we haven’t tried
Then I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine….
