From the very first time I rest my eyes on you,boy
My heart said follow through but I know now
That I'm way down on your line
But the waiting feeling's fine

So don't treat me like a puppet on a string  Because I know how to do my thing 
Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb
I want to know when you're gotta come,you see

I don't want to wait in a vain for your love
I don't want to wait in a vain for your love
I don't want to wait in a vain for your love
 Cause summer is here
And I'm still waiting there  Winter is here
I'm still waiting there 

Like I said
It's been three years since I'm knocking on your door
And still I can knock some more
Ooh boy, ooh boy, is it crazy look, I want to know now
For I to knock some more,you see

In life I know
That there is lots of grief 
But your love is my relief  Tears in my eyes burn
 Tears in my eyes burn
 While I'm waitin'
 While I'm waitin' for my turn,you see

I don't want to wait in a vain for your love
I don't want to wait in a vain for your love
I don't want to wait in a vain for your love
 Cause summer is here
And I'm still waiting there  Winter is here
I'm still waiting there 

Like I said
I don't want to,I don't want to
I don't want to,I don't want to
I don't want to wait in vain
I don't want to,I don't want to
I don't want to,I don't want to
I don't want to wait in vain

It's been three years since I'm knocking on your door
And still I can knock some more
Ooh boy, ooh boy,is it crazy look, I want to know now
Like I said, the tears in my eyes burn
 Tears in my eyes burn
 While I'm waiting  While I'm waiting for my turn,you see
Ooh boy, ooh boy, is it crazy look, I want to know now
For I to knock some more
In life I know there is lots of grief 
But your love is my relief
