Gotta Get Up

by Harry Nilsson

Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the mornin' comes.

What if I'm late? Got a big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up.

Up and away, got a big day, sorry we can't stay, I gotta run, run, yeah.

Gotta get home, pick up the phone, gotta let the people know I'm gonna be late.

There was a time when we could dance until a quarter to ten.

We never thought it would end then, we never thought it would end.

We used to carry on and drink and do the rock and roll.

We never thought we'd get older

We never thought it'd grow cold, but now

Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the mornin' comes.

What if I'm late? Got a big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up.

Up and away, got a big day, sorry we can't stay, I gotta run, run, yeah.

Gotta get home, pick up the phone, gotta let the people know I'm gonna be late.

Down by the sea she knew a sailor who had been to war.

She never even knew a sailor before, she never even knew his name.

He'd come to town and he would pound her for a couple of days

And then he'd sail across the bubbly waves and those

And those were happier days, but now

Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the mornin' comes.

What if I'm late? Got a big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up-

Up and away, got a big day, sorry we can't stay, I gotta run, run, yeah.

Gotta get home, pick up the phone, gotta let the people know I'm gonna be late.
