I got a message from a girl in distress
She was a prisoner in an apartment address
But like a hero to the scene of the crime
I lost my way and there was so little time

Stood at a bus stop on a cold rainy day
Tire through a puddle threw some mud in my face
No bus arrived so I just crawled into town
I took my chances on the underground

Subway station, wall to wall people
I couldn't squeeze onto a train
In desperation, I looked for a taxi
But oh, the searching was in vain

Too late the hero, ten down to zero
Too late the hero, why did she say
"Boy, boy, you're way too late?
She said, "Boy, boy you're way too late"

I caught a train but there was nowhere to sit
Reached for a strap, I thought, I heard something rip
There on the Central Line, my pants fell apart
Train broke down and we were stuck in the dark

Subway tunnel claustrophobia
Best suit, wrinkled and damp
Finally when I crawled up to her door
She said, "Goodbye chump"

Too late the hero, ten down to zero
Too late the hero, why did she say
"Boy, boy, you're way too late?
She said, "Boy, boy you're way too late"

Did I see someone in the shadow?
Did I hear footsteps on the floor?
Did I hear laughter in the background
Just before she slammed that door?

I turned around and I headed home
I was tired, rejected and cold
Missed the last train, left around midnight
So I walked that lonesome road

Too late the hero, ten down to zero
Too late the hero, why did she say
"Boy, boy, you're way too late?
She said, "Boy, boy you're way too late"

(Too late, too late the hero)
Way too late
(Too late, too late the hero)
Way too late
(Too late, too late the hero)
Way too late
Too late hey, hey, hey
