Been a company man, working half my life
Like some loyal old dog, just a-wagging my tail
But I can't can't get ahead, bosses won't pay me no mind
I want to make a change, looks like it’s time for me to bail
So, don’t come out trying to whistling me home, maybe throwing me a bone
You find you lost the best old dog you ever had
Too little, too late, too bad!

Woman, you know I fell in love with you
Don't give you no reason, to break all the rules
Well your secrets out now, the whole world knows
Don't you be taking me for some kind of fool
If you come out a-calling my name,
Saying maybe, baby, maybe things can change,
Well, I'm afraid you done lost the best chance you ever had
It's too little, too late, too bad!

Maybe for the very first time, I'm gonna make my move
Maybe I'll fall right flat on my face, but at least I got to choose, oh...

Oh and buddy, I stuck with you through the good times and the bad
Spent everything I had, when you needed a fresh start
But when I needed you, you shut me out cold
Left me lost and wandering, you really broke my heart
If you ever find yourself low down and short of friends
And reach out to me wanting to make amends
Man, You'll find you've lost the best friend you ever had
Too little, too late, too bad!
Too little, too late, too bad!
