i can almost taste it
it’s sweet as wine

verse 2:

there’s a custom-tailored world that i wanna own someday
with a special place up high where we can stay alone you and me
girl, i’m gonna have it all someday if you’ll
just hang on to my hand
if i break some rules along the way, girl, you
gotta understand
it’s my way of gettin’ what i want now, ’cause i’m hungry

[repeat chorus]

link 2:


(f) [fuzz b-ss plays eighth-notes throughout]
i can almost taste it now
oh, it’s sweet as wine
ain’t gonna waste it now
when it’s finally mine


eb bb f
gonna live each minute, fill the hours and days
eb bb f
’til i’ve had my fill
eb bb f
aw, girl, i’ll be rollin’ in it
eb bb f
yes, yes, you know i will, yes i will, owww!
