"Time waits for no one, that's wahy can't wait on you."
"Time waits for no one, that's wahy can't wait for you."

In fact, Noelle, it certainly could be in British English, in American English I think one would say something like ""Time waits for no one, that's why I can´t get waiting for you, I just can´t wait forever!"
So, even when "wait on you" is used in the sense of "for you" it isn´t to mean long long waiting. My opinion here, anyway I would pick the examples and insights Thomas has given.
