Kylie Minogue - Give Me Just a Little More Time

Kylie Minogue - Give Me Just a Little More Time

"Give Me Just a Little More Time" is a song originally recorded by "Chairmen of the Board". It was released as their debut single in 1970 from their debut album The Chairmen of the Board.

Kylie covered the song for her fourth studio album Let's Get to It, which was released in 1991. "Give Me Just a Little More Time" was released as the third single from the album in 1992. Kylie's version was featured in a commercial for Accurist watches at the time. It was one of the last tracks to be recorded for her fourth album, . It peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, assisted by its club-oriented B-side "Do You Dare?" and sold 325,000 copies.

Background

Speaking about the song, Kylie said:

I went to bed, and, and I literally was in bed thinking of all these records that I had in my life [...] I was going through the library mentally thinking, what song would she never have done that we could do that was just a great song. And one of my favorite songs was Chairman of the Board's 'Give Me Just a Little More Time.'

"Give Me Just a Little More Time" was one of the last songs to be recorded for the album it comes from, and was released as the third single from it in January 1992.

"Give Me Just a Little More Time" is the only song from Let's Get to It to be included on Kylie's career-spanning compilation Ultimate Kylie and The Best of Kylie Minogue. The B-side "Do You Dare?" was included on Kylie's Greatest Remix Hits 2 and both appeared on the medley album Kylie's Non-Stop History 50+1.

Lyrics

Give me just a little more time
And our love will surely grow
Give me just a little more time
And our love will surely grow

Life's too short to make a mistake
Let's think of each other and hesitate
Young and impatient we may be
There's no need to act foolishly
If we part our hearts won't forget it
Years from now we'll surely regret it

Give me just a little more time (Give me just a little more time)
And our love will surely grow (Give me just a little more time)
Give me just a little more time (Give me just a little more time)
And our love will surely grow (Give me just a little more time)

You're young and you're in a hurry
You're eager for love but don't you worry
We both want the sweetness in life
But these things don't come overnight
Don't give up 'cause love's been slow
Boy, we're gonna succeed with another blow

Give me just a little more time (Give me just a little more time)
And our love will surely grow (Give me just a little more time)
Baby, please, baby (Give me just a little more time)
Baby, please, baby (Give me just a little more time)

Love is that mountain we must climb
Let's climb it together your hand in mine
We haven't known each other too long
But the feeling I have is oh so strong
I know we can make it, there's no doubt
We owe it to ourselves to find it out

Give me just a little more time
And our love will surely grow
Give me just a little more time (Give me just a little more time)
And our love will surely grow (Give me just a little more time)
Give me just a little more time (Give me just a little more time)
And our love will surely grow (Give me just a little more time)
Baby, please, baby (Give me just a little more time)
Baby, please, baby (Give me just a little more time)
Give me just a little more time (Give me just a little more time)
And our love will surely grow (Give me just a little more time)
Give me just a little more time (Give me just a little more time)
And our love will surely grow (Give me just a little more time)
Give me just a little more time (Give me just a little more time)
And our love will surely grow (Give me just a little more time)
