ROME WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY
Don't, honey, don't go away, no no
Don't you hear, don't you hear what I say, what I say?
Give me time, give me time
I'm gonna make your love as strong as mine
But I know Rome wasn't built in a day
Now you know that I love you, dear, with all my heart
I know that you didn't love me from the start
That I'm planting a little seed in your heart, I know
& it just needs time to grow, baby
Listen to me, honey now
How would Romeo feel if his Juliet
Had turned down his advances & played hard-to-get?
He would never let this bother him, this I know
Because where there's life, there's hope
Don't you hear me tellin' you that Rome wasn't built in a day?
Don't you realize that Rome wasn't built in a day?
