All I Gotta Do

all i gotta do 
is sit and wait 
sit and wait 
and it's gonna find 
me 
all i gotta do 
is sit and wait 
if i can learn how

what i need to do 
is sit and wait 
cause i'm a woman 
sit and wait 
what i gotta do 
is sit and wait 
cause i'm a woman 
it'll find me

you get yours 
and i'll get mine 
if i learn 
to sit and wait 
you got yours 
i want mine 
and i'm gonna get it 
cause i gotta get it 
cause i need to get it 
if i learn how

thought about calling 
for it on the phone 
asked for a delivery 
but they didn't have it 
thought about going 
to the store to get it 
walked to the corner 
but they didn't have it

called your name 
in my sleep 
sitting and waiting 
thought you would awake me 
called your name 
lying in my bed 
but you didn't have it 
offered to go get it 
but you didn't have it 
so i'm sitting

all i know 
is sitting and waiting 
waiting and sitting 
cause i'm a woman 
all i know 
is sitting and waiting 
cause i gotta wait 
wait for it to find 
me
