They just keep holdin' me
A-won't let go
Holdin' me
Won't let go!

I need a hammer, a hammer, a hammer, a hammer
To hammer them down!
I need a rammer, a rammer, a rammer, a rammer
To ram them down!

They just keep teasin' me
And, you know, they play like they don't know
Provokin me
But this is all I know

I need a rammer, a rammer, a rammer, a rammer
To ram them down!
I need a hammer, a hammer, a hammer, a hammer
To hammer them down!

Wee-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh

Oh, I need a rammer, a rammer, a rammer, a rammer
To ram-a them-a down!
Oh, I need a hammer, a hammer, a hammer, a hammer
To hammer them down!

Said, I need a rammer, a rammer, a rammer, a rammer
To ram-a them down!
I need a hammer, a hammer, a hammer, a hammer
To hammer them down!

Holdin' me (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Won't let go (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Holdin' me (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Won't let go (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I need a rammer, a rammer, a rammer, a rammer
To ram-a them down!
I need a hammer, a hammer, a hammer, a hammer
To hammer them down!
(I need a rammer)

I need a hammer, a hammer, a hammer, a hammer
To hammer them down!
I need a rammer, a rammer, a rammer, a rammer
To ram them down!

I need a hammer, a hammer, a hammer, a hammer
To hammer them down!
I need a rammer, a rammer, a rammer, a rammer
To ram them down!
