Ooh
Oh oh
I feel, I need, I've got to hold on to your love, ooh

Hey baby, thought you were the one who tried to run away
Ooh, baby, wasn't I the one who made you want to stay?
Please don't bet that you'll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill (to kill)
Anyone who tries to tear us apart
(Got a license to kill)
License to kill, ooh

Hey baby, think you need a friend to stand here by your side?
Yes, you do (your side)
Ooh, baby, now you can depend on me to make things right (things right)
Please don't bet that you'll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill (to kill)
Anyone who tries to tear us apart
(Got a license to kill)

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill (to kill)
Anyone who tries to tear us apart
(Got a license to kill)

Say that somebody tries to make a move on you
In the blink of an eye, I will be there too
And they better know why I'm gonna make them 'em pay
Till their dying day
Till their dying day
Till their dying day

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart, baby
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill
Anyone who tries to tear us apart
(Got a license to kill)

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill
Anyone who tries to tear us apart
(Got a license to kill)
License to kill
Gotta hold onto your loving
License to kill, ooh

    Song MeaningTina Turner sung the next Bond song, why not also this one? The voices are very similar. Now i understood that she could be fooling the sick jealousy of Ike Turner.
    It is said that he mistreated her.

    However, sometimes cigarette burns are involved in mistreatment.
    And this will ruin your skin.
    So you should perhaps not start smoking.
    I like the song better when i think about the sociological consequences of jealous behaviour. One chicane is that you don't have the license to "smoke" anymore.
    "Smoking Kills".
    You stil have the license to go to war and see how "James Bond-like" you feel there anyway...
