Once upon a time
Not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks
The union went on strike
He's down on his luck, it's tough, so tough

Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man, she brings home her pay
For love, for love

She says we've gotta hold on to what we've got
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not
We've got each other and that's a lot
For love, we'll give it a shot

Whoa, we're halfway there
Oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it, I swear
Oh, livin' on a prayer

Tommy's doing his six string in hock
Now he's holding in what he used
To make it talk, so tough, so tough

And Gina dreams of running away
But she cries every night, Tommy whispers
Baby it's okay, someday

We've gotta hold on to what we've got
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not
We've got each other, that's a lot
For love, we'll give it a shot

Whoa, we're halfway there
Oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it, I swear
Oh, livin' on a prayer, yeah
We're livin' on a prayer

We've gotta hold on, ready or not
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got, whoa

And I say whoa, we're halfway there
Oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it, I swear
Oh, livin' on a prayer

You know, we're halfway there
Oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it, I swear
Oh, livin' on a prayer

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh, livin' on a prayer
Oh yeah
Whoa, livin' on a prayer
Oh yeah, yeah

Tommy used to work on the docks
The union went on strike
He's down on his luck, it's tough
Hey Tommy, it's tough
