Real Late Starter

This song is by Joe McElderry and appears on the album Wide Awake (2010).

This song is a cover of "Real Late Starter" by Nerina Pallot.
I woke up late today
Actually I do that everyday
Got no place to be seen
I'm not part of a scene
I'm a genius loser
Keeping counsel with my own opinion
President of the state that I'm in
Should I just stay in bed?
Should I live in my head?
Oh God so many questions to ask

Oh you could call me lazy
I think of it as taking my time
'Cause I don't want to do what I don't want to do
I'm the king refusenik

But oh my God
If I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite - I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh well

Day by day I wonder
If I will be torn asunder
By these things that I know
That nobody else knows
Or maybe it's the drinking
I guess we should consult a Bible
Everybody needs a sign or
Bless the birds and the bees
The flowers and trees
And blessed be the slacker

But oh my God

If I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite - I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh well

You must be having a laugh
Oh God your having a laugh
No point in worrying if my days a disaster
Inside my little head I'm happy ever after
Yes I am

But oh my God
If I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite
I missed my calling in life

But oh my God
If I was somebody I'd be doing it all just fine
But I'm a real late starter
So I'm making up for lost time
Oh my God if I was somebody
You'd be kissing my arse right now
But I'm so polite - I do it all of the time
I missed my calling in life
Oh what am I like
Yeah well
Oh well
