If It Takes Forever



She says she's superior
She says he must wait
If it takes forever she'll become his date

He says he's intractable
He says she must bow
If it takes forever he'll become her wow

She says she's adorable
She says he must drift
If it takes forever she'll become his gift

He says he's unrelenting
He says she must yield
If it takes forever he'll become her shield

She says she's exceptional
She says he must pause
If it takes forever she'll become his cause

He says he's implacable
He says she must rise
If it takes forever he'll become her prize

She says she's ambivalent
She says he must bide
If it takes forever she'll become his bride

He says he's victorious
He says she must fan
If it takes forever he'll become her man
