lyrics

I always used to hurry
I never took my time
And anything I wanted
I had to make it mine

I used to get frustrated
‘Til everything turned red
And when I told my mama
She smiled and shook her head
And said

Rome wasn’t built in a day
Sometimes you just gotta wait

But I just didn’t listen
It didn’t make no sense
I acted on my feelings
‘Til things got too intense

But I was getting nowhere
And wasting precious time
And when I spoke to mama
She told me I’d be fine
She said

Rome wasn’t built in a day
Sometimes you just gotta wait

Slowly catchee monkey
Prudence is the best philosophy
For me

And now I take it easy
I think before I speak
I weigh up situations
I look before I leap

I’m never in a hurry
I always have a plan
I listened to my mama
And now I understand
She said

Rome wasn’t built in a day
Sometimes you just gotta wait
Rome wasn’t built in a day
Sometimes you just gotta wait

The Bad Losers Bristol

The Bad Loser’s formed in 2004 due to a shared love of 60s Garage and Freakbeat.

Their recordings are made in a garden shed which resembles a small Working Men’s Club with carousal competing equally with musical creation.

In the comfort of this environment, the band have settled down to a long period of home recording in search of capturing an appropriate lo-fi sound.
