Hold the paper up to the light
Some rays pass right through
Expose yourself out there for a minute
Some rays pass right through

Take a little rest when the rays pass through
Take a little time off when the rays pass through
Go ahead, mix it up, go ahead and tie it up
A long distance telephone call

Hold on to that paper
Hold on to that paper
Hold on 'cause it's been taken care of
Hold on to that paper

See if you can fit it on the paper
See if you can get it on the paper
See if you can fit it on the paper
See if you can get it on the paper

Had a love affair but it was only paper
Some rays they pass right through
Had a lot of fun, could have been a lot better
Some rays they pass right through

Take a little consideration, take every combination
Take a few weeks off, make it tighter, tighter
If you know it was never, it was never written down
Still might be a chance that it might work out

Hold on to that paper
Hold on to that paper
Hold on 'cause it'll be taken care of
Hold on to that paper

Don't think I can fit it on the paper
Don't think I can get it on the paper
Go ahead and rip up, rip up the paper
Go ahead and tear up, tear up the paper
