15 Waterloo

Written by: (B. Andersson / S. Anderson / B. Ulvaeus)

My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender
oh yeah, and I have met my destiny
in quite a similar way
the history book on the shelf
is always repeating itself

Waterloo – I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo – promise to love you for ever more
Waterloo – couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Waterloo – knowing my fate is to be with you
Wa, wa, wa, wa, Waterloo – finally facing my Waterloo

My, my, I tried to hold you back but you were stronger
oh yeah, and now it seems my only chance
is giving up the fight
and how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose

Waterloo – I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo – promise to love you for ever more
Waterloo – couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Waterloo – knowing my fate is to be with you
Wa, wa, wa, wa, Waterloo – finally facing my Waterloo

So how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose –

Waterloo – couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Waterloo – knowing my fate is to be with you
Wa, wa, wa, wa, Waterloo – finally facing my Waterloo
