I have dined with you by candlelight
I have sung you serenades at night
Someday you'll see you belong with me
And for once, my world will be all right
I'll wait forever if you need me to
And if you take longer, I'll wait still
I know I will win your heart someday soon
And I'll fight for your love until

CHORUS:
Victory, victory
The happy day you'll stay with me
Someday you'll see you belong with me
And then, I'll have my victory

You brought home a different man today
You broke my heart, but he will pay
Can't you see you belong with me
How could you treat my love this way?
He isn't coming home from work tonight
And you'll forget him soon enough
He was just an obstacle to push aside
I'll walk that path, though it be rough, to

CHORUS

I saw you in your wedding dress
From fifty yards away, more or less
I hoped you'd see you belong to me
But now, you've gone and made a mess
And now, we're locked up in the bridal suite
You'll never break my heart again
The fire alarm says I've done the deed
We'll die in this embrace, and then

CHORUS (much slower)

Today, you see, you belong to me
I've finally got my victory
