Sooner or Later

Words by Ray Gilbert
Music by Charles Wolcott
Performed by Hattie McDaniel
© 1946 Walt Disney Music Company


Sooner or later you're gonna
   be comin' around,
I betcha, I betcha that I catch ya,
You wait and see.

Sooner or later you're gonna
   be hangin' around,
I betcha, I betcha if I catch ya,
You'll hear from me.

You're gonna knock on my door
You've done it before
Matter of factly I don't know exactly when

But sooner or later you're gonna
   be hangin' around
And want my cookin' again.

You're gonna knock on my door [knock knock]
You've done it before [knock knock]
Matter of factly I 'spected you 'zactly then!

Cause sooner or later I know you'd
   be hangin' around
And want my cookin' again.
But you ain't gonna get it!

 






While the movie's song focused on Aunt Tempy's cooking, the sheet music version actually addressed love:

You and I said goodbye
With a friendly kiss
And though I'm not the surest kind,
I'm kinda sure of this:

Sooner or later you're gonna be
comin' around, I'll betcha;
I'll betcha that I getcha, you wait and see.
Sooner or later you'll wanna be
hangin' around, I'll letcha;
I'll betcha if I letcha, you'll baby me.

You're gonna knock on my door
You did it before
Matter o'factly I don't know exactly when.

But sooner or later you're gonna be comin' around
and want my lovin' again.
