Sooner or later your going to be mine,
Sooner or later your going to be fine,
Baby it's time that you face it,
I always get my man

Sooner or later your going to decide,
Sooner or later there's nowhere to hide,
Baby it's time so why waste it in chatter?
Let's settle the matter,

Baby your mine on a platter
I always get my man

But if you insist babe,
The challenge delights me,
The more you resist babe,
The more it excites me,

And no one I've kissed babe,
Ever fights me again,
If you're list on my list,
It's just a question of when,
When I get a yen,
Then baby, amen,
I'm counting to ten,
And then...

I'm gonna love you like nothing you've known
I'm gonna love you and you all alone,
Sooner is better than later,
But lover, I'll hover, I'll plan,
This time I'm not only getting,
I'm holding my man!
