Girls, when you've got a good love who's gonna treat you right 
But another guy offers you a better life 
Right away you start to swoon 
Because he offers you the moon 
Tell me, is riches worth more than love & affection? 
Don't be steered in the wrong direction 'cause 
(A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush) remember girls 
(A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush) 
So hold onto what you've got 

You're just losin' a love that's true 
For a love that might last a day or 2 
Why gamble when you have what you need? 
You might be losing everything, girls 
The grass looks greener on the other side 
But you just might be taken for a ride 'cause 
(A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush) remember girls 
(A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush) 
So hold onto what you've got 

(instrumental) 

Come on & tell me, is riches worth more than love & affection? 
Don't be steered in the wrong direction 'cause 
(A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush) remember girls 
(A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush) 
So hold onto what you've got 

Just as sure as the wind will blow 
Fellas will come & fellas will go 
Makin' promises they vow to keep 
But chances are you'll be left to weep, girls 
So if you have a guy that's good to you 
Hold on tight, it's the thing to do, 'cause 
(A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush) remember girls 
(A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush) 
So hold onto what you've got 

(repeat & fade): 
Hold on, hold on girls 
'Cause a bird in the hand is worth in the bush now
