Huh, I can't turn you loose now, if I do I'm gonna loose my life
Honey, I can't, never, turn you loose now, if I do, I'm gonna lose my life
I can't turn you loose to nobody, 'cause I love you, baby, yes I do

Ooh baby, give me shakin' mama, I told ya
Honey, I'm in love with only you
Gotta, baby, do it baby, why don't ya?
I'm gonna give you everything that you want

I gotta, gotta, gotta keep on holdin' on, baby
Never, never gonna turn you loose
Keep on, keep on holdin' on, gotta, gotta

I can't turn you loose now, I'm in love with the prettiest thing, ooh
I'll never, never turn you loose now
Because of all the sweet love she brings
I said I can't turn you loose to nobody, baby, I love you, baby, yes I do

Give me shakin', mama, I love you, I'm in love with only you
Gotta, baby do it, why don't ya?
And I'm gonna give you everything that you want

I gotta, gotta, gotta keep on, keep on holdin' on
I'm never gonna turn you lose now, never gonna lose you, baby

I can't turn you loose now, never, I'm never gonna turn you loose
I'm gonna keep on holdin' on, turn you loose
Gonna keep a grip on you, I can't turn you loose

Keep on holdin' on and I'm gonna hold
Never been easy and I gotta hold
Then I'm gonna do, never gonna turn you
Gonna keep on holdin' on, hold on to you, baby
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta
Keep on, keep on provin', we gotta keep holdin'
