Lyrics

[Intro]
One, two, three, four!

[Verse 1]
She was always in a hurry
Never took the time to look around
She was always one to worry and fret
Staring at the ground

[Verse 2]
Every minute, she'd be rushing
Someone always breathing down her neck
Felt like everyone was pushing her down
Keeping her in check

[Verse 3]
How could she leave? She's gotta stay
Somebody has to sit and wait
Deep in a dream, she hears a voice
"It's not too late to celebrate"

[Pre-Chorus]
Uncontrollable laughter (not too late to celebrate)
'Round and 'round in her head (no one said you've got to wait)
This is what she was after (not too late to celebrate)
Not too late, not too late

[Chorus 1]
It's never too late to celebrate
No one said you've got to wait
Allow me to congratulate you, baby
Yeah, yeah

It's never too late to celebrate
And no one said you had to wait
Allow me to congratulate you, baby

[Chorus 2]
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late, never too late

Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late, never too late

[Verse 2]
Now she doesn't have to hurry
She can do exactly what she wants
Ask her why she doesn't worry or fret
This is her response:

[Pre-Chorus]
Uncontrollable laughter
'Round and 'round in her head
This is what she was after
Not too late, not too late

[Chorus 1]
It's never too late to celebrate
No one said you've gotta wait
Allow me to congratulate you, baby
Yeah

It's never too late to celebrate
Allow me to congratulate
It's never too late to celebrate you, baby

[Outro]
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late, never too late

Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late, never too late

Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late, never too late

Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late, never too late

Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late to celebrate
Never too late, never too late

Never too late to celebrate
Ahh, ahh!
