a little behind

[20-second delay at beginning]

a little behind the beat
a meeting I could not meet
a deadline I couldn’t eat
a little behind

a little behind the ball
what with life and living and all
it’s not that I’m trying to stall
just a little behind

so what the heck
alright, you’re already gone
can anything else go wrong?
life can wait

the sticker that never stuck
a little chunk of good bad luck
bright ideas gone amuck
a little behind

the feather that didn’t float
a chip that never fell
my little piggy going broke
a little behind

so what the heck
alright, you’re already gone
can anything else go wrong?
life can wait

a little behind the ball
what with life and living and all
it’s not that I’m trying to stall
just a little behind

so what the heck
alright, you’re already gone
can anything else go wrong?
life can wait
