You had better hold on
Hold on to what you got
You had better hold on
Hold on to what you got

'Cause if you think nobody wants it
Just throw it away and you will see
Someone will have it before you can count
One, two, three, yes, they will, yes, they will

Listen fellas, you know, it's not all the time
That a man can have a good woman
A woman that he can call his very own
A woman who'll stay right there at home
And mind the children while he's gone to work

A woman who'll have his dinner cooked
When he comes home
Where some men make mistakes is when they go out
And stay because they feel that no other man
Wants his woman but him, but listen

If you think no other man wants her
Just throw her away and you will see
Some man will have her before you can count
One, two, three, yes, they will, yes, he will

Ha, ha, listen girls, this goes for you, too
Because you know I've seen so many women
Who've had so many good men in life

Men who would stand by 'em through thick and thin
Men who would go to work everyday and bring home
Their hard earned pay
Men who would give their women anything that their
Little heart desired

Where some women make mistakes
Is when their men go out and let 'em play
They would stay because they felt that no other
Woman wanted him but her, listen

If you think that no other woman wants him
Just pitch him out in the streets and you will see
Some woman will have your man before you can count
One, two, three, yes, you will, yes, you will
