(Piano intro)
Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the morning comes.
What if I'm late, gotta big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up
Up and away, got big day, sorry can't stay, I gotta run run yeah
gotta get home, pick up the phone, I 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 morning comes.
What if I'm late, gotta big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up
Up and away, got big day, sorry can't stay, I gotta run run yeah
gotta get home, pick up the phone, I 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 were happier days, But now

Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the mooorning comes.
What if I'm late, gotta big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up
Up and away, got big day, sorry can't stay I gotta run run yeah
gotta get home pick up the phone, I gotta let the people know I'm gonna be late
This song is from the album "Nilsson Schmilsson", "The Masters" and "Everybody's Talkin".
