Ooooh
Oh-hooo
I feel, I’ve got to hold on to your love
Oooh.

Hey baby, thought you were the one who tried to run away.
Ohh, baby, wasn’t I the one who made you want to you?
Please don’t bet that you’ll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you.

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I’m going straight for your heart.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill (to kill)
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)
License to kill.

Hey baby, think you need a friend to stand here by your side?
Yes you do (your side)
Ohh, baby, now you can depend on me to make things right (things right)
Please don’t bet that you’ll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you

Say that somebody tries to make a move on you
In the blink of an eye, I will be there too
And they better know why I’m gonna make them ’em pay
Till their dying day
Till their dying day
Till their dying day

Wikipedia: Licence to Kill (soundtrack)
Initially Eric Clapton and Vic Flick were asked to write and perform the theme song to Licence to Kill. The theme was said to have been a new version based on the James Bond Theme. The guitar riff heard in the original recording of the theme was played by Flick.

The prospect, however, fell apart and Gladys Knight’s song and performance was chosen, later becoming a UK Top 10 hit. The song (one of the longest to ever be used in a Bond film) was composed by Narada Michael Walden, Jeffrey Cohen and Walter Afanasieff. It was based on the “horn line” from Goldfinger, which required royalty payments to the original writers. The music video of “Licence to Kill” was directed by Daniel Kleinman, who later took over the reins of title designer from Maurice Binder for the 1995 Bond film, GoldenEye.

Wikipedia: Licence to Kill
Licence to Kill (1989) is the sixteenth official entry in the James Bond series, and the first one not to use an Ian Fleming novel’s title as its title. While enjoying a generally positive critical reception, it was the first James Bond film to be given a PG-13 rating in the United States and also the first to gain a 15 rating in the United Kingdom, being noted as significantly darker and more violent than its predecessors. Due to these issues, as well as marketing problems including a last minute title change, Licence to Kill had poor US box office returns, making just USD$34,667,015, barely more than its estimated USD$32,000,000 budget, though it performed well overseas.
