Written by Natalie Cole

Gimme some time, Baby

I know you're thinking that I'm playing

But I'm saying that I wouldn't hurt you for the world, oh no

I'm not so blind, Baby

I need your lovin' and you know it (yes, I do, well) 'cause I'll show it, well

I don't wanna be hurt you

If you want me to I'll keep it a secret

But please let me get through your door

'Cause I guarantee that once we get started

You'll soon be begging for more

We want the whole world to know that we are one

So why don't you gimme some time, Baby

Let's take advantage not for granted for the good things

(We got for the good thangs)

I don't want to be hurt you

You just be kind, Baby

We've got a good thing and I know it, let's not blow it, oh

'Cause I wouldn't hurt you for the world, I'm serious

I believe you think that I haven't noticed

The look in your eyes when you smile

And my senses tell me there's something missing

So please let me stay for a little while

I want the whole world to know that we are one

We got it together, Baby, we're one

So why don't you gimme some time, Baby

I know you're thinking that I'm playing

But all I'm saying

'Cause I wouldn't hurt you for the world, I'm serious

Gimme some time, Baby, gimme some time, Baby

I, I know, you know, I know you love me

And I thank that you thank that we should be together

So why, why, why don't you gimme some of your time

Hey, that's all I need, that's all I want

Gimme just a little hour, just some more time

Yeah, you better gimme some time

Oh, you better gimme some time
