If that watch don't continue to swing
Or the fat lady fancies having a sing
I'll be here
Waiting ever so patiently for you to
Two cliches are touched on here, one being hypnotized by a swinging watch and the other being fat lady singing. It ain’t over until the fat lady sings! is a classic line urging someone not to give up at something no matter how dismal it looks, originating from the fact that opera shows typically end with a large woman singing.
As Turner struggles to get the girl to snap out of it, he hopes she’ll comes out from the hypnotist spell, the love she feels for the guy that came after him.
However, he admits that even if the fat lady never sings he’ll still be waiting for her, meaning he’ll always feel some sort of affection for his ex-lover.
