The tide is high but I'm holdin' on
I'm gonna be your number one
I'm not the kind-a girl who gives up just like that, oh no

It's not the things you do that tease and hurt me bad
But it's the way you do the things you do to me
I'm not the kind-a girl who gives up just like that, oh no

The tide is high but I'm holdin' on
I'm gonna be your number one, number one.

Ev'ry girl wants you to be her man
But I'll wait my dear till it's my turn
I'm not the kind-a girl who gives up just like that, oh no

The tide is high but I'm holdin' on
I'm gonna be your number one, number one, number one

Ev'ry girl wants you to be her man
But I'll wait my dear till it's my turn
I'm not the kind-a girl who gives up just like that, oh no

The tide is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one, number one, number one

The tide is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
The tide is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
The tide is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one

Blondie

Blondie is an American rock band, founded by singer Deborah Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American New Wave and punk scenes of the mid-1970s. Their first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles including "Call Me", "Atomic" and "Heart of Glass" and became noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco,pop,rap, and reggae, while retaining a basic style as a New Wave band. more »
