[Verse 1]
Tommy used to work on the docks
Union went on strike, he's down on his luck, it's tough
Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man, she brings home her pay for love
ooh, for love

[Chorus]
 they say we gotta hold on to what we've got

[Verse 2]
Tommy's got his six string in hock
Now he's holding in when he used to make it talk so though,
mmmh it's tough
And Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night, Tommy whispers
Baby, it's okay.......someday...

[Chorus]
