Time Waits For No One
Mavis Staples

U came 2 me
Said give U more time
Time 2 get yourself 2gether
Time 2 make up your mind
I want 4ever love
U want a one night fantasy
While I'm sittin' here waitin' on U
U know somebody somewhere's waitin' on me

Time waits 4 no one
Time don't wait 4 nobody, nobody
And time waits 4 no one
If U wait 2 long
U can turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

(Time, time, time)

I just can't sit around
Watchin' my life pass me by
So if U're ever gonna make a change
Better be right now, right now, right now!

I don't know if anybody ever told U, boy
But impatience is my middle name (My middle name)
So if my good, good? good lovin' means anything 2 U, babe
U better stop runnin' your game

Time waits 4 no one (No one)
Time don't wait 4 nobody, nobody
Time waits 4 no one (No one)
If U wait 2 long
U turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

U came 2 me
U said give U more time
But baby, baby, I could see through U
Even if I were deaf, dumb and blind

Time waits 4 no one (No one)
Time don't wait 4 nobody, nobody
(Time) Time waits 4 no one
So if U wait 2 long (2 long)
U turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

(Time, time, time) Waits 4 no one
Don't wait 4 no one
Nobody, nobody
No, nobody

Time waits 4 no one
Time don't wait 4 nobody, nobody {fade out}
Time, time, time waits 4 no one
