about

Nothing but life experience is going to help you here. It’s difficult sometimes to work out whether a relationship - personal, romantic, professional or any other sort - is likely to be a ‘waste of time’. All I do know is that the older you get, the less time you have got to waste!

lyrics

Precious, precious time
It seems to me, lord, that you’ve been wasting mine
I worked hard, baby
Don’t want a man like you to waste my precious time

Because it’s all just a matter of time
And I don’t want you wasting any more of mine
I worked too hard baby
To let a man like you waste my precious time

You promised the moon and the stars
And then you broke my heart
You had the power to change my world, it’s true
Put stars in my eyes, while you told me pretty lies
The way you did me ain’t the right thing to do...

So I’m thinking ‘bout my precious time
I don’t want you wasting any more of mine
‘Cause I worked too hard
To let you waste my precious time

I want a straight-talking man, with a straight-talking plan
Don’t just say what you think I want to hear...
‘Cause I heard it all before, I don’t want that kind of deal no more
If it ain’t the truth, then man I ‘m out of here

So I’m thinking ‘bout my precious time
I don’t want you baby wasting any more of mine
‘Cause I work too hard
To let a man like you waste my precious time
You ain’t got no respect
You ain’t even got a dime
I worked too hard to let a man like you
Waste my precious time...
