124 – Ricky Nelson – It’s late (1959)

It’s late é uma cancão lançada por Ricky Nelson em 1959, escrita por Dorsey Burnette. Chegou ao número 9 dos charts pop em 1959.

A letra dela é uma espécie de “wake up little Susie”, dos Everly Brothers. Só que nesse caso, em vez de estarem dormindo no cinema, o sujeito tá dizendo para a namorada que está tarde, que não podem ligar para avisar porque não tem mais dinheiro, e mais uma série de desculpas.

E no refrão, ele pede que saiam de casa mais cedo e espera que por estarem tao atrasados, que não esse não seja o ultimo encontro deles. Quando para nossa surpresa, eles já estão vendo sol nascer e o cara tá com medo do que o pai dela vai dizer.

A letra:

It's late (it's late)
We gotta get on home
It's late (it's late)
We've been gone too long
Too bad (too bad)
We shoulda checked our time
Can't phone (can't phone)
We done spent ev'ry dime
It's late (it's late)
We're 'bout to run outta gas
It's late (it's late)
We gotta get home fast
Can't speed (can't speed)
We're in a slow-down zone
Baby, look at that clock, why can't it be wrong?

If we coulda left home at a quarter to nine

Woulda had fun and plenty of time
We got started just a little bit late
Hope this won't be our last date

Look up (look up)

Is that the moon we see?
Can't be (can't be)
Looks like the sun to me
It's late (it's late)
I hate to face your Dad
Too bad (too bad)
I know he's gonna be mad
It's late (it's late)
We gotta get on home
It's late (it's late)
We've been gone too long

It's late (it's late)

We're 'bout to run outta gas
It's late (it's late)
We gotta get home fast
Can't speed (can't speed)
We're in a slow-down zone
Baby, look at that clock, why can't it be wrong?

If we coulda left home at a quarter to nine

Woulda had fun and plenty of time
We got started just a little bit late
Hope this won't be our last date

Look up (look up)

Is that the moon we see?
Can't be (can't be)
Looks like the sun to me
It's late (it's late)
I hate to face your Dad
Too bad (too bad)
I know he's gonna be mad
It's late (it's late)
We gotta get on home
It's late (it's late)
We've been gone too long
(It's late)
