Story

For a number of years I played with Al Bonnis and Vance Wissinger under the name "Late As Usual".

I came up with this idea as sort of a theme song for us but we never played it!  

Lyrics

Well I get my morning paper cause I got some time to read But I can't

leave the house with out some shoes on my feet

I'm looking for my shoes when I realize I aint got my keys.

I find my keys in my pocket my shoes behind the door and I am huffing

like a freight train as I run across the floor

I look at my watch an see I'm gonna be late once more.

Late as usual you know that's my style

Late as usual I'll be there in a while

Late as usual I'll get there when I can

You see I'm just a late as usual man.

My work day is crazy in fact it's close to hell I'm getting myself

together when I here some body yell Hey aint you coming well you see they've been waiting for me.

I grab a pen that don't work a pad of paper in my hand I belly up to the table just as cool as I can

I aint fooling no one I'm a late as usual man.

Late as usual I hope you understand

Late as usual I'll get there when I can

If you get there early get the problems in hand I'm just a late as usual man

 

I call my baby up on the telephone

I say get yourself together cause your daddy's coming home About that

time somebody says let's get a beer.

About three hours later when I come strolling in The dog is glad to see

me he don't care where I been

But I know to my sweet heart this late stuff is getting mighty thin.

Late as usual you know that's my style

Late as usual I'll be there in a while

Late as usual I'll get there when I can

You see I'm just a late as usual man.

Late as usual don't worry about me

Late as usual I'll be fine you see

Late as usual I'll meet you with a smile

It's no excuse it's just a life style
