Any minute now, his arms will hold me.
Any minute now.
Any minute now, just like he told me.
Any minute now.
In a little while, he will elate me,
Tighten up my life, uncomplicate me.
He'll be here in just a dream, no longer.
Any minute now.
Any minute now, that git will show up.
Any minute now.
Any minute now, or I will throw up.
Any minute now.
Talking like Lord Muck, all 'posh' and fancy,
I could ring the neck of my fiance.
If he don't turn up, I'll shoot the bleeder...
Any minute now.
Any minute, I'll hear his laughter. Any minute now. Any minute now,
and ever after. Any minute now.
In a little while, when he has found me. He will build a world of
love around me. Funny how my dream can seem a lifetime.
Any minute now, me rat will call me. Any minute now.
Count up to ten and calm your nerves. He'll soon be here.
Any minute now, me ape will maul me. Any minute now.
He'll bring your hopes, he'll bring your dreams. Don't worry, dear.
Better have me ring, or he'll go flying; Bet he's in the lav,
rehearsing lying! Got a feeling that the cat will bring him.
Any minute now. Any minute now. Any minute now.

John Barry
