commodores – hold on lyrics

Loading...

[intro]
hey, hey, hey. hey!

[verse 1]
look in the mirror; what you see?
are you the one you want to be?
are you tripping on cloud nine
or has the world left you behind?

what do you have, what can you show?
what people see is what they know
time has its changes that we all go through
how the wheels of life will turn will all depend on you

[pre-chorus 1]
some things in life are hard to see, baby
that’s why i want you to listen to me

[chorus]
hold on to what you got
tomorrow don’t promise a whole lot
hold on to what you got
tomorrow don’t promise a whole lot

[verse 2]
great b-lls of fire! you work so hard
you break your back to keep your job
times today ain’t what they used to be
is that so hard for you to see?

simple things can make you happy
this i know we’ve all been told
don’t be blinded by tomorrow
and let these words stay with your soul:
“all that glitters is not gold”

[pre-chorus 2]
so many things you could be losing, baby
if you’re the one you’re really fooling

[chorus]

[bridge]
ow!
hold, hold! do do do do do-do do. yeah (ahhhhh woo!)
hold, hold! do do do do do-do do. yeah (ahhhhh)

[verse 3]
sho’nuff looking fine and fancy
you’re flying high, so it seems, yeah!
don’t let grooving to the joneses
make you step out of your means

plastic faces, funny books
nothing’s real now, once you look
people all dressed up like hollywood
can’t tell the bad guys from the good

(you better)

[chorus x 2]
