One Way or Another by Blondie

Blondie

Blondie is a rock band founded by vocalist Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein and were pioneers of the American punk scene and the following new wave scene of the mid-1970s in New York. Their first two albums reflected strong elements of the genres, and were highly successful in the UK and Australia, however in the US they were an underground band until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Blondie disbanded in 1982 with Harry pursuing a solo career as well as taking time off to care for her partner, Stein, when he was diagnosed with pemphigus. The band reformed in 1997 achieving a UK number one with the single Maria in 1999, exactly twenty years after their first UK number one Heart of Glass

Lyrics by Deborah Harry, Clement A Bozewski, and Nigel Douglas Harrison

One way, or another, I’m gonna find ya
I’m gonna get ya get ya get ya get ya
One way, or another, I’m gonna win ya
I’m gonna get ya get ya get ya get ya
One way, or another, I’m gonna see ya
I’m gonna meet ya meet ya meet ya meet ya
One day, maybe next week
I’m gonna meet ya, I’m gonna meet ya, I’ll meet ya

I will drive past your house
And if the lights are all down
I’ll see who’s around

One way, or another, I’m gonna find ya
I’m gonna get ya get ya get ya get ya!
One way, or another, I’m gonna win ya
I’ll get ya! I’ll get ya!
One way, or another, I’m gonna see ya
I’m gonna meet ya meet ya meet ya meet ya!
One day, maybe next week, I’m gonna meet ya
I’ll meet ya! Ahhh…

And if the lights are all out
I’ll follow your bus downtown
See who’s hangin’ ’round!

One way, or another, I’m gonna lose ya
I’m gonna give you the slip!
A slip of the hip for another
I’m gonna lose ya, I’m gonna trick ya!
I’ll trick ya!

One way, or another, I’m gonna lose ya
I’m gonna trick ya trick ya trick ya trick ya!
One way, or another, I’m gonna lose ya
I’m gonna give you the slip!

I walked down the mall
Stand over by the wall
Where I can see it all
Or find out who ya call!
Lead you to the supermarket checkouts
Some specials and rat food
Get lost in the crowd

One way, or another, I’m gonna get ya
I’ll get ya, I’ll get ya get ya get ya get ya!
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way, or another, I’m gonna get ya
I’ll get ya, I’ll get ya get ya get ya get ya!
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way, or another, I’m gonna get ya
II’ll get ya, I’ll get ya get ya get ya get ya!
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way, or another, I’m gonna get ya
I’ll get ya, I’ll get ya get ya get ya get ya!
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way, or another, I’m gonna get ya
I’ll getcha, I’ll get ya get ya get ya get ya!
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way, or another, I’m gonna get ya
I’ll get ya, I’ll get ya get ya get ya get ya!
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way, or another
