Little Time Bomb - Billy Bragg

    One of them's off her food
    And the other one's off his head
    And both of them are off down the boozer
    To drink a toast
    To the one that he hates most
    And she says there are no winners, only losers

    Well if there no are winners
    Then what is this he thinks
    As he watches her complete a lap of honour
    And he sits in the stands
    With his head in his hands
    And he thinks of all the things
    He'd like to bring down upon her

    Revenge will bring cold comfort in this darkest hour
    As the juke box says "It's All Over Now"
    And he stands and he screams
    What have I done wrong
    I've fallen in love with a little time bomb

    In public he's such a man
    He's punching at the walls with his bare and bloody hands
    He's screaming and shouting and acting crazy
    But at home he sits alone and he cries like a baby

    He holds your letters but he can't read them
    As he fights this loneliness that you call freedom
    You said this would happen and you were not wrong
    I've fallen in love with a little time bomb
