I don't wanna be no clock watcher
Standin' in line
I don't wanna be someone in love
Wastin' my time

Can I get right to the point, baby
You know I care
Tell me what you want, yeah, baby
And I'm right here

Now tell me what it is I'm supposed to do
And someday I'll get to you
But in the meantime
I know what I gotta do

Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
On your love
Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
On your love

I don't wanna be your standby, girl
Hangin' around
I know you would tell me, baby
If I ever let you down

But I cannot second guess you, huh
From what I see
You're not saying nothin', baby
But I know you wanna talk to me, yeah

Now tell me what it is I'm supposed to do
And someday I'll get to you, girl
But in the meantime
I know what I gotta do

Is hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
On your love
Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
On your love

Well, I don't wanna be that someone
Lettin' you down, yeah
I don't wanna be your standby, girl
Hangin' around, well

Now tell me what it is I'm supposed to do
And someday I'll get to you, girl
But in the meantime
I know what I gotta do

Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby, ooh
On your love
Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
On your love

Hurry up and wait
I don't wanna be your standby, baby
Hangin' around, yeah, girl
I don't wanna be someone in love
Wastin' my time

Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
Waitin' here on your love
Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
Waitin' here on your love

Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
Waitin' here on your love
Hurry up and wait, yeah, baby
Waitin' here on your love
