You never know what you've got
Until you chase it away
And you knew it all along
But you'd like to let me think that I'm right
So you can prove me dead wrong

And I was busy trying to think of something clever to say
By the time the words hit my tongue
You had yourself a brilliant idea
To take your heart and run

And I know that I'm nearly impossible
But '’ll tell you what, I'll tell you what, honey
No other girl in this whole wide world
Is gonna give you this kind of
Run for your money

And in the battle for your heart
I wanna know who you've been
Rooting for all of this time
'Cause babe, I've been trying to win it
But I've got a feeling I'm no longer in it
But here I am down on the floor
Begging for just one, just one, just one more
Go around on the minute hand
'Cause I'm still in it, man

You never know how good it was
'Til it gets bad
When it all went south
I wished that I could turn it all back
And never open my mouth

And I know that I'm nearly impossible
But I'll tell you what, I'll tell you what, honey
No other girl in this whole wide world
Is gonna give you this kind of
Run for your money

And in the battle for your heart
I wanna know who you've been
Rooting for all of this time
'Cause babe, I've been trying to win it
But I've got a feeling I'm no longer in it
But here I am down on the floor
Begging for just one, just one, just one more
Go around on the minute hand
'Cause I'm still in it, man

You sure know how to make a girl work for her food
Well, I'm guessing you've realized you like me
A little bit more than you think you should
But don't expect me to write or call you after all you made me do
When all the work in the world
Ain't enough for a girl like me to have a boy like you

You never know what you've got
Until you chase it away

And in the battle for your heart
I wanna know who you've been
Rooting for all of this time
'Cause babe, I've been trying to win it
But I've got a feeling I'm no longer in it
But here I am down on the floor
Begging for just one, just one, just one more
Go around on the minute hand
'Cause I'm still in it, man
Oh, I sure am
So how bout one more
Round on the minute hand
'Cause I'm still in it, man
