​Too Bad

This song is by Ashford & Simpson and appears on the album Send It (1977).

You know sometimes it takes what you're doin'
Before you know you're goin' right
Sometimes you don't make your bed up
Sleep was hard last night, hmm

Sometimes it takes more than you have
To benefit from what you know
Sometimes you keep pouring water
But the seeds don't grow, woah
You're just almost

Too bad you had to go so far
To find what was on the end of the time, yeah

I was there, yes, I was planning the hand of time
She was so wise, so smart but it was all arranged, yes, it was
You can trace the mystery 'cause it laid right back in me

Too bad you had to go so far
To find what was only

You know sometimes it takes what you're doin'
Before you know you're goin' right
Sometimes you don't make your bed up
Sleep was hard last night, hmm

Sometime it takes more than you have
To benefit from what you know
Sometimes you keep pouring water
But the seeds don't grow, no, no
You're just almost

Too bad you had to go so far
To find what's only

Too bad, too bad, too bad
Too bad, too bad, too bad

Too bad you had to go so far
Too bad you had to go so far to find what's only, yeah

I was there all the time going all the way
Too bad, too bad, too bad, too bad, yeah
I was there, I was there in your path
Oh, it's too bad, oh yes, it is

I had to go so far, oh yeah
Too bad, too bad, too bad, too far, too bad
Too bad, too bad
I was here all the time, all the time
