  • One way or another, I'm gonna find ya
    I'm gonna get ya, get ya, get ya, get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna win ya
    I'm gonna get ya, get ya ,get ya, get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna see ya
    I'm gonna meet ya, meet ya, meet ya, meet ya
    One day, maybe next week, I'm gonna meet ya
    I'm gonna meet ya, I'll meet ya

    I will drive past your house
    And if the lights are all down
    I'll see who's around

    One way or another, I'm gonna find ya
    I'm gonna get ya, get ya, get ya, get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna win ya
    I'll get ya, I'll get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna see ya
    I'm gonna meet ya, meet ya, meet ya, meet ya
    One day, maybe next week, I'm gonna meet ya
    I'll meet ya, ah

    And if the lights are all out
    I'll follow your bus downtown
    See who's hangin' out

    One way or another, I'm gonna lose ya
    I'm gonna give you the slip
    A slip of the hip or another, I'm gonna lose ya
    I'm gonna trick ya, I'll trick ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna lose ya
    I'm gonna trick ya, trick ya, trick ya, trick ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna lose ya
    I'm gonna give you the slip

    I'll walk down the mall
    Stand over by the wall
    Where I can see it all
    Find out who ya call
    Lead you to the supermarket checkout
    Some specials and rat food
    Get lost in the crowd

    One way or another, I'm gonna get ya (where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
    I'll get ya, get ya, get ya, get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna get ya (where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
    I'll get ya, get ya, get ya, get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna get ya (where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
    I'll get ya, get ya, get ya, get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna get ya (where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
    I'll get ya, get ya, get ya, get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna get ya (where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
    I'll get ya, get ya, get ya, get ya
    One way or another, I'm gonna get ya (where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
    I'll get ya, get ya, get ya, get ya Writer/s: Deborah Harry, Nigel Harrison
