Gladys Knight---Licence To Kill
Music by Narada Michael Walden, Jeffrey Cohen, Walter "Baby Love" Afanasieff and Michael Kamen
Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley

Ooooh
Oh-hooo
I feel, I've got to hold on to your love
Oooh.

Hey baby, thought you were the one who tried to run away.
Ohh, baby, wasn't I the one who made you want to you?
Please don't bet that you'll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you.

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill (to kill)
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)
License to kill.

Hey baby, think you need a friend to stand here by your side?
Yes you do (your side)
Ohh, baby, now you can depend on me to make things right (things right)
Please don't bet that you'll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill (to kill)
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)

Say that somebody tries to make a move on you
In the blink of an eye, I will be there too
And they better know why I'm gonna make them 'em pay
Till their dying day
Till their dying day
Till their dying day

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart, baby.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm heading straight for your heart.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)
License to kill
Gotta hold onto your loving.
License to kill
Ooohooo!
Kill.
