Radio XXXVI, side B, track 3: “Hold On Tight” by Work Force

Hold On Tight - Work ForceOh, Work Force, this hasn’t happened too often since I started this blog, but sometimes there’s almost nothing about a band or a song that I can find on the internet.  Granted, if it doesn’t come up on the first couple of pages of a Google search, that’s the extent of my searching prowess, but come on, Work Force, if you’re not on the first page of a Google search, do you really even exist?  Not saying that there’s nothing on you.  I found a You Tube video of this song, and judging by the comments, you’ve got a few fans out there, but no personal website?  No Wikipedia article? What the what, Work Force?  I’m not saying that I remembered this song when I saw the name pop up on my track list, but once I listened to it. . .well, I still didn’t completely remember it, BUT I thought it was a damn good song.  And I’m really glad that I recorded it, because now if other Work Force fans are looking for a little bit more on you guys, they’ll at least have the lyrics to one of your songs.  Plus they’ll get to hear that you guys were a big deal, if only for a moment on a rural radio station on a 48-degree morning.  That’s more than a lot of people will ever be able to say about their lives, Work Force, so bask in your new-found internet glory!

“Hold On Tight”

I used ta take love to the limit

Controllin’ a little too far

I thought I was slick
Used very trick in the book

Then I caught your eye for a minute

Was taken completely off guard

I lost my heart
Right from the start with one look

Here’s somethin’ you ought to knooow
Gonna work it ’til it comes out right

Now I’m never gonna letchoo gooo
I’m gonna hold on tiiight

Honey, I made you a promise
A promise that I’m bound to keep

This time it’s real
That’s how I feel about you

I hope thatcha’ll never forget this

‘Cause, baby, I’m in way too deep

I’m keepin’ my word, all thatchoo heard will ring true

Here’s somethin’ you ought to knooow
Gonna work it ’til it comes out right

Now I’m never gonna letchoo gooo
I’m gonna hold on tiiight

No, I’m never gonna walk awaaay

This love is woorth the fiiight

Time and time again you’ll hear me saaay
I’m gonna hold on tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

<awesome Work Force jam>
