Sooner Or Later

Song Lyrics

Sooner or later you’re gonna be mine,
Sooner or later you’re gonna be fine.
Baby, it’s time that you face it,
I always get my man.

Sooner or later you’re gonna 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, you’re 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 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.
