    Don't wantcha for the weekend, don't wantcha for a night
    I'm only interested if I can have you for life, yeah

    You're a fine piece of real estate, and I'm gonna get me some land

    Oh, yeah
    So, don't try to run, honey; love can be fun
    There's no need to be alone when you find that someone

    [Chorus]
    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha while I gotcha in sight
    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha if it takes all night
    (Yeah, you can betcha)
    You can betcha by the time I say "go," you'll never say "no"
    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha; it's a matter of fact
    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha, don'tcha worry 'bout that
    (Yeah, you can betcha)
    You can bet your bottom dollar, in time you're gonna be mine
    Just like I should - I'll getcha good

    Yeah,
    I've already planned it
    Here's how it's gonna be
    I'm gonna love you, and you're gonna fall in love with me
    Yeah

    So, don't try to run, honey; love can be fun
    There's no need to be alone when you find that someone

    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha while I gotcha in sight
    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha if it takes all night
    (Yeah, you can betcha)
    You can betcha by the time I say "go," you'll never say "no"
    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha; it's a matter of fact
    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha, don'tcha worry 'bout that
    (Yeah, you can betcha)
    You can bet your bottom dollar, in time you're gonna be mine
    Just like I should - I'll getcha good

    Uh, uh
    Yeah, I'm gonna getcha, baby
    I'm gonna knock on wood
    I'm gonna getcha somehow, honey
    Yeah, I'm gonna make it good
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Oh, yeah
    So, don't try to run, honey; love can be fun
    There's no need to be alone when you find that someone

    I'm gonna getcha; it's a matter of fact
    (I'm gonna getcha)
    I'm gonna getcha, don'tcha worry 'bout that
    (Yeah, you can betcha)
    You can bet your bottom dollar, in time you're gonna be mine

    Oh I'm gonna getcha
    I'm gonna getcha really good
    But you can betcha oh I'm gonna getcha
    Just like I should I'll getcha good
    Oh I'm gonna getcha good

  • Karen from Manchester, NhMy daughter was born around the time this song came out, and she was hooked from babyhood! Granted, I think she was born to be a Shania fan, as the song that was playing the moment she was born was "That Don't Impress Me Much". The real funny thing is, I was never a Shania fan until my daughter started liking her!
