Lyrics
One more time you hurt me
You thought you had your victory
One more reason for you to worry
Cause you got the best of me, ah
You should never count your chickens
Before your eggs get hatched
I believe it, mm, to my soul
You finally met your match

Tell me now, when this battle is over who will wear the crown?
When this battle is over who will wear the crown?
Who will it be?  (who will it be?)
Oh, will it be you?  (will it be me?)
Tell me now, who will wear the crown? yeah

Ever time I kiss you
I feel I get the upper hand
I want you, ooh, to surrender
And tell me you’re gonna be my man
A slip of the lip
Has been known to sink a ship
And I believe, I believe, I believe to my soul
I finally got a winner’s slip

Yeah, when this battle is over, I wonder who will wear the crown
When this battle is over who will wear the crown?
Who will it be?  (who will it be?)
Oh, will it be you?  (will it be me?)
Yeah, tell me know, who will wear the crown? yeah

(When this battle is over, over)  I wonder who’ll be wearing the crown
(When this battle is over, over)  Oh, when it’s overs, till then
(When this battle is over, over)  Yeah, when it’s over now
(When this battle is over, over)  Oooh, when it’s over, hey
(When this battle is over, over)  Yeah, when it’s over
(When this battle is over, over)  Yeah, hey, when it’s all over
(When this battle is over, over)  Oh, oh, oh, oh, all over

Català – Quan S’Acabi La Batalla
Un cop més m’has fet mal
Has pensat que tenies la teva victòria
Una raó més per a que et preocupis
Perquè has rebut el millor de mi, ah
Mai has de comptar els teus pollastres
Abans que els teus ous s’hagin covat
Crec, mm, dins la meva ànima
Que finalment has trobat qui et possarà a lloc

Ara digue’m, quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, qui portarà la corona?
Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, qui portarà la corona?
Qui serà?  (qui serà?)
Oh, seràs tu?  (seré jo?)
Ara digue’m, qui portarà la corona? sí

Cada cop que et faig un petó
Sento que tinc la paella pel mànec
Vull que, ooh, et rendeixis
I em diguis que seràs el meu home
Un relliscada del llavi
Ha estat coneguda per enfonsar un vaixell
I crec, crec, crec dins la meva ànima
Que, finalment, tinc un lliscament guanyador

Sí, quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, em pregunto qui portarà la corona
Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, qui portarà la corona?
Qui serà?  (qui serà?)
Oh, seràs tu?  (seré jo?)
Sí, ara digue’m, qui portarà la corona? sí

(Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, acabi)  Em pregunto qui estarà portant la corona
(Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, acabi)  Oh, quan s’acabi, fins aleshores
(Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, acabi)  Sí, quan passi
(Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, acabi)  Oooh, quan s’acabi, hey
(Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, acabi)  Sí, quan s’acabi
(Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, acabi)  Sí, hey, quan tot s’acabi
(Quan s’acabi aquesta batalla, acabi)  Oh, oh, oh, oh, tot acabi
