One more time you hurt me
You thought you you had your victory
One more reason for you to worry
'Cause you got the best of me
Ha, you should never count your chickens before your eggs get hatched
I believe it, hmm, to my soul
You finally met your match

Tell me now
When this battle is over
Who will wear the crown?
When this battle is over
Who will wear the crown?
Who it will be?
(Who it will be?)
Oh, will it be you?
(Will it be me?)
Tell me now ?
Who will wear the crown, yeah, yeah

Ever time I kiss ya
I feel I get the upper hand
I want you, ooh, to surrender and tell me ya gon' be my man
A slip of the lip has been known to sink a ship
And I believe, I believe, I believe to my soul
I finally got a winner's slip

Yeah, when this battle is over, I wonder
Who will wear the crown?
When this battle is over
Who will wear the crown?
Who it will be?
(Who it will be?)
Oh, will it be you?
(Will it be me?)
Yeah, tell me now
Who will wear the crown, yeah

(When this battle is over) I wonder who be wearin' the crown
(When this battle is over) oh, when it's over, children 
(When this battle is over) yeah, when it's over
(When this battle is over) oh, when it's over
(When this battle is over) yeah, when it's over
(When this battle is over) oh, when it's over
(When this battle is over) oh, over, now, now
(When this battle is over)
