WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh talk to me, can't you see I'll help you work things out
Oh don't wanna be your enemy and I don't wanna scream and shout

Cos baby I believe in honesty a man that's stong and true
I shouldn't have to say now baby that I believe in you

What took you so long what took you all night
What took you forever to see I'm right
You know I'll treat you so good I'll make you feel fine
And no I'll never give it up this time
