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

I'm not the kinda man who gives up just like that, no oh oh oh
It's not the things you do, that really hurts me bad 
But it's the way you do the things, you do to me 

I'm not the kinda man who gives up just like that no oh oh oh
The tide is high but I'm holding on 
I'm gonna be your number one 
Number one, number one 

Every man wants you to be his girl 
But I'll wait my dear 'till it's my turn 
I'm not the kinda man who gives up just like that, no oh oh oh

Every man wants you to be his girl 
But I'll wait my dear 'till it's my turn 
I'm not the kinda man who gives up just like that, no oh oh oh

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
