It Won't Be Long

by Mr. Blink

"It Won't Be Long" -words by Mike Caucutt


I'm sittin' here lookin' through the classified ads
Lookin' for someone who wants me
'cause I need a job and I need it bad
"cause being poor doesn't impress me
but I know that it won't be long
And I know it'll be here soon
yes I know that it won't be long until

CHORUS
My ship is gonna come in baby
and I'll sail away - yeah
Then you'll be crying
and wishing you would've stayed
and I know that it won't be long
Yes, I know it'll be here soon
Oh, I know I'm gonna be there riding high on the waves.

but now I'm walking down the street with a hole in my shoe
and a dollar in my hand
All I have left is the memory of you
and a broken down Volkswagon Van
but even though the sun's not shining
and the rain is coming down
I know that it won't be long until

CHORUS

Well, maybe I'm a name in the telephone book
who never has a busy signal
But baby turn around and take a second look
before you left me single
and I know that you don't believe me
when I say that the skies will clear
and I know that it won't be long until

CHORUS
