  • I know you think, I'm no match for you baby
    You like making it rough on me don't, don't you? My, my
    Back to the shack, ah, ah, yeah
    Nothing suits me better than that

    If time has taught me anything
    Got to learn to be the ball
    And I can't keep from laughing at it all
    Whoa, whoa, I'm goin' now

    I'm going all the way
    Sooner or later gotta love somebody
    Don't care how long it takes

    Like a shot to the heart
    I've got news for you
    I may not look so smart
    But I'm nobody's fool

    All alone, that's enough for me baby
    Taking it slow, it's too much for me to analyze
    Still alright, heading into the rhythm of the sunlight

    Winds of wild insanity, blow with me tonight
    Saddle up all you cowboys, gonna ride
    Whoa, whoa, I'm goin' now

    I'm going all the way
    Sooner or later gotta love somebody
    Don't care how long it takes

    You can turn up the heat
    But I'm playing it cool
    I know it's hard to believe
    I ain't nobody's fool

    I'm going all the way (all the way)
    Sooner or later gotta love somebody (I don't care)
    Don't care how long it takes

    You might think that I have not
    Gone to school on you
    Baby like it or not
    I ain't nobody's fool

    My illumination may come as some surprise
    You may try to deny it
    You're amazed when the clown slaps you in the face
    Leaves you dumbfounded there in his wake (yeah)

    I'm going all the way (yeah)
    Sooner or later gotta love somebody (gotta love somebody)
    Don't care how long it takes

    Like a shot to the heart
    I've got news for you
    Baby, I'm not so smart
    But I'm nobody's fool

    I'm going all the way (oh yeah)
    I'm going all the way (Nobody's fool, baby, nobody's fool)
    Don't care how long it takes (I don't care, listen to the right)
    I'm going all the way (who's fooling who?) Writer/s: Kenny Loggins, Michael Towers
