I told you how long we've got
All the time in the world
I've got a thing for you
You've got a thing for me

I've got my mind made up
You've got my heart you know
You've got a thing for me
You've got a thing for me

I told you how long we've got
All the time in the world
I've got a thing for you
You've got a thing for me

I've got my mind made up
You've got my heart you know
You've got a thing for me
You've got a thing for me

She's gonna leave at three
That's what her friend told me
Now I can't bear to check the time

Tonight she'll take my heart home with her
But I'm not ready to let it go now
Oh, how long have we got?

I told you how long we've got
All the time in the world
I've got a thing for you
You've got a thing for me

I've got my mind made up
You've got my heart you know
You've got a thing for me
You've got a thing for me

For me, for me, for me, for me
For me, for me, for me, for me
For me, for me, for me, for me
For me, for me, for me, for me

And now it looks to me
Like she's about to leave
But as she passes
She leans close and says

My boy, you got to keep that chin up
I'm gonna come back here next week for now
Just take my telephone number
Just remember what I told you

I told you how long we've got
All the time in the world
I've got a thing for you
You've got a thing for me

I've got my mind made up
You've got my heart you know
You've got a thing for me
You've got a thing for me

I told you how long we've got
I told you, I told you
I told you how long we've got
I told you, I told you

I've got my mind made up
I told you, I told you
You've got a thing for me
You've got a thing for me
