Lyrics

All the other guys
Are scared to talk to you
'Cause they understand
It isn't any use
They just play around
With the easy girls
But I can make a move
And blow apart your world

Now or later
I will find you
And I'm going to
Make you mine, too
Now or later
I will find you
And I'm going to
Make you mine, too

All the other girls
They talk a lot of trash
Try to put you down
Like you ain't got no class
Don't you give a damn
Because you understand
They wanna be like you
So highly in-demand

Now or later
I will find you
And I'm going to
Make you mine, too
Now or later
I will find you
And I'm going to
Make you mine, too

Now give it to the man
The man, the man
I've loved you all along
I'm strong, I'm strong
They'll never say I'm wrong
They're wrong, they're wrong
We're meant to be together
Never, no never
You don't need them boys
Cheap toys, cheap toys
You know I'm right for you
It's true, it's true
I do what they can't do
They're blue, they're blue
You're in the best of hands
My hands, my hands

Now or later
I will find you
And I'm going to
Make you mine, too
Now or later
I will find you
And I'm going to
Make you mine, too

Now or later
Now or later
