She'd given everything she could give 
Twenty years of kindness made her sad 
Kindness never made enough to live 
So she sold the very last thing that she had 
As she held her hand out to him 
As he drove around the block 
He mouthed through the window 'just hold on' 
'I've held on many years now and I haven't found a lot' 
Hold on, hold on to what? 
So hold on to what? Hold on to what? 
Holding on is harder when it's something you've not got 
I'll need a pair of stilts if I'm to ever reach the top 
So hold on! Hold on to what? 

Many years of service with a smile 
Up shit creek and down the Rhine 
Gibraltar Rock and now the Emerald Isle 
He'd shined every shoe that he could shine 
And as he lay in his own blood 
Screaming 'I've been shot' 
He heard the Major whisper 'just hold on' 
'I've held on all these years now, now what medal have I got?' 
Hold on, hold on to what? 
So hold on to what? Hold on to what? 
Holding on is harder when it's something you've not got 
I'll need a pair of stilts if I'm to ever reach the top 
So hold on! Hold on to what? 
So hold on to what? Hold on to what? 

Holding on is harder when it's something you've not got 
I'll need a pair of stilts if I'm to ever reach the top 
So hold on! Hold on to what? 

Sixty years and he's looking his worst 
Sitting in the park where she'd died 
Running hands through his final hair 
These are the words that he cried 
To achieve the American dream 
You need a trampoline 
To achieve the counter effect 
Get that whisky down your neck' 
And hold on, hold on to what? 
Chamberlain had his paper 
Jesus had his cross 
They held on 
We held on to what?
