Uriah Heep – Won't Have To Wait Too Long lyrics

It's a quarter to seven
On a Saturday morning
I open my eyes
After the Friday night
I don't worry about
The rain upon my window
'Cause where I'm going
I know the sun will always shine

So now I'm heading away
Down to Rio de Janeiro
I'll be leaving all my
Lonely times behind
And if I'm looking for love in
Rio de Janeiro
There'll be someone there
I know who'll find the time

In this golden place
There's a smiling face
I've got to find
And I won't have to wait too long
Before she's mine

My friends are telling me
I'm chasing rainbows
Or searching for the
Gold beneath the sea
But rainbows only shine
When it's been raining
And gold will never
Keep you company

So now I'm wonderin'
What to say in conversation
To the lady of my dreams
That I should meet
If I speak to her
The language of all nations
Then I'm sure that she'd be
Knocked right off her feet

And I know she will
Then I'll love her
Till the end of time
And I won't have to wait too long
Before she's mine

Well I've been happy enough in
Rio de Janeiro
I've got a woman here
That I can call my own
It doesn't matter if
I'm living here or there-o
'Cause she used to live
Next door to me back home

So if you're thinking that
I've settled down forever
I'll be telling you
You've made a big mistake
'Cause I'll be heading away
Down to Denver, Colorado
There's a woman there
I've got to try and make

She can fill the hole
In my heart and soul
For a long, long time
And I won't have to wait
Too long before she's mine
