"Sooner Or Later" as written by and Stephen Sondheim....
Sooner or later you're gonna be mine
Sooner or later you're gonna be fine
Baby, it's time that you face it
I always get my man

Sooner or later you're gonna decide
Sooner or later there's nowhere to hide
Baby, it's time, so why waste it in chatter?
Let's settle the matter

Baby, you're mine on a platter
I always get my man

But if you insist, babe, the challenge delights me
The more you resist, babe, the more it excites me
And no one I've kissed, babe, ever fights me again
If you're on my list, it's just a question of when

When I get a yen, then baby, Amen
I'm counting to ten, and then

I'm gonna love you like nothing you've known
I'm gonna love you, and you all alone
Sooner is better than later but lover
I'll hover, I'll plan

This time I'm not only getting
I'm holding my man

    My InterpretationContrary to what Sondheim's lyrics describe, in Madonna's broken heart-she will never get her man after all because Madonna Cries Sooner or Later with a deep sadness-like her heart is gonna break at any moment or second. Our Lady of Detroit Heartbreak Just Cries for Rock to Hear! Madonna is Brilliant! Madonna Forever! Brilliance and Sadness, that's Madonna!
