You dont know it but Ive made my mind up
You'll wind up in my arms
First I have to break down your resistance to my charms

Yes, darling, I know it wont be easy
But I wont rest until I find a way
Everybody knows that Rome wasnt built in a day

How Ill make it happen Im not certain
Im workin on a plan and when I get it tight
Youll believe Im your man

You dont know it yet but youll surrender
When Ill make my play
But everybody knows that Rome wasnt built in a day

Ill offer you protection
Twenty-four hour love and affection
But itll take time to make it right

Just look at what the pharaoh did
When he build his pyramid
Everybody knows that didnt spring up over night

Therell be a celebration and a silver band will play
But everybody knows that Rome wasnt built in a day
Rome wasnt built in a day
