One Word, Too Little, Too Late



With apologies to Mr Mathis, another song for Gordon in respect of his magnanimous apology for 'Smeargate'.

Hope it's over, said 'sorry' today,
Sorry that it had to be this way,
I'd tried hard to pretend,
But knew it had to end some day, this way,

Hope it's over, McBride is gone,
Draper and Whelan tryin' to hang on,
Those emails were the key,
Proved I had no integrity, and it's clear to see,

One word's too little, too late, my lies have been seen through,
One word's too little, too late, the whole world knows I knew,
A letter in felt tip really wasn't going to do,

Hope it's over
Oh, it's not over

One word's too little, too late to ever make amends,
One word's too little, too late to gain respect again,
One word's too little, too late, my smears will be my end,

Ah, hope it's over,
It's not over,

Hope it's over, the polls are down
Even the left-wing press has gone to town,
I tried to smear and lie, yet still try to deny,
Hope it's over (It's over)
It's not over

One word's too little, too late to ever make amends,
One word's too little, too late to gain respect again,
One word's too little, too late, my smears will be my end,

And it's not over,
It's not over,
It's not over,

One word's too little, too late to ever make amends,
One word's too little, too late to gain respect again,
(repeat to fading opinion polls...)

I like perhaps though another suggestion in Elton John and sorry seems to be the hardest word

"It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd"

@neil:

Nah, too easy.

Elton could've written that song about ZanuLiebore - it's more fun to use less relevant tracks.
