Roxanne Emery – Late lyrics
The eighties baby
You'll find her by the window waving
She's always on time
She always gets the questions right and,

The Nineties girl
With her saucer eyes
And her chocolate curls
But don't be fooled
She'll never love you cause' she's to damn cool

And, do you hear, hear the children scream
How do we learn, now that our teacher is gone?
Do you see, see that little girl
How do I learn, now that my role model's gone?

The noughties girl
You'll, you'll find her in the back row laughing
She's never on time
But you know if she fails,
Then she's gonna cry

And the naughty girl, oh
She's set to learn
The black mark how does it feel
By your name it's like a scar that won't heal

Do you hear, hear the children scream
How do we learn, now that our teacher is gone.
Do you see, see that little girl,
How do I learn now that my rolemodels gone.

And, I know you, get the best holidays
You've been gone for so long, lets count the days
So stop this, cause' I've had enough
Come home, where I'm gonna love you so much

Do you hear,
Hear the closing bell
See the smoke oh
And what's that smell

Do you see, see that I don't cry
I can't feel without you, so how can I
So stop this cause' I've had enough
My last words to you were
'I'm gonna miss you so much'

And the one lesson, please don't cry
You never taught was how to say goodbye
Goodbye, Goodbye does it come in time
Goodbye, Goodbye hope it comes in time
