"No Time"
"American Woman"

"No Time" is a song by Canadian rock band The Guess Who. Composed by guitarist Randy Bachman and lead singer Burton Cummings, the song is basically a Dear John letter stating, "No time left for you".

There are two versions of the song. The original 1969 recording was done for The Guess Who's album Canned Wheat. But it is the 1970 re-recording (as featured on the American Woman album) that is the better-known version. This one is slightly faster in tempo and the two verses transposed. While the 1970 single only broke the Billboard top 10 in the US, peaking at number five, it was the third in a string of #1 million selling singles in Canada for The Guess Who.

This song was also used in the movie Pirates of Silicon Valley
