(I never mind waiting, ooh, ooh)

First a glance, then a smile
Warmer than all of the heavens
Whispering to me your name
And asking of me the same
First a song, then a dance
That could have lasted forever
But time said we had to part,
Not caring if it broke our hearts
You said, "Hope we meet again"
I said, "Yes, just tell me when"
Please don't make me wait too long (help me, baby)
Don't make me wait too long

First a note, then a call
With such tender conversation
I knew alright it would be
If you came to visit me
First a kiss, then we were gone
To love's magic land together
But morning said you must go
Not caring if it hurt us so
I ask you, "Will we again?"
You said, "Yes, just tell me when"
Don't make me wait too long, ooh no
Don't make me wait too long (help me, baby)
Don't make me wait too long

First you're here, then you're gone
It's that same old heartbreak story
Thought that you'd be in my life
For more than just one night
But you say you got to leave
It destroys me, boy, it hurts me
Tell me what did I do wrong
For you to leave me all alone?
I don't care how long you'll be
'Cause I will wait patiently
But please, don't make me wait too long, ooh oh no
Don't make me wait too long
Got to do that for your mama baby
Don't make me wait too long
