"When you are mine" as written by and Billy Preston....
When you are mine
Jesus Christ will walk on water with our blessings
The bells will chime!
Venus de Milo will grow a couple of wings
And pose for photos with an arm around each of us

When you are mine
It will be agreed without saying a thing
That the world can stand in line for the privilege
Of kissing our feet

When you are mine
Time will stand on its head
Will sit on its hands
Original sin will be revised
To include hearts two sizes too large

I made a master leap and caught the arrows
People tried to shoot over our heads
I throw them javelin style back at him
Hit him right between the eyes
And he realized that he should have aimed instead
At our unmade bed
At our unmade bed

When will you be mine?
Let's set a date
Tell all our friends and relations
That the time for bashful lashes
Is now officially in the past

I signed the cast on your broken heart
And it will mend, speedily fast

When you are mine
When I bow, and your curtsy to me
The world will know the beauty of two hearts
Skipping every other beat

When you are mine (repeated)

When you are mine
I will be yours
We'll mix up all the drawers, all the dressers confused
And we'll wear each others' clothes
No one will be sure to know
Which ones were stupid
Or whose grandparents are sexy m.f.-ers in the south of France

When you are mine
When you are
When you are

What are your intentions with this heart two sizes too large?
Are you gonna catapult over the garden wall
And plant the seeds of
Our forever being yours, being mine, being yours
