Johnny boy, he's always propping up the bar
He's sees life crystallized through his jar
He says he only lives for beer
But deep in his heart is a cry of fear

[rep. intro pattern]

Sally seems to get bigger everyday
She evens out in a contented way
A finger on the pulse of every guy
But deep in the night you can hear her cry

[repeat chorus]
Give me a heart to hang onto
Give me a life that's tailored new
Give me a heart to hang onto

[repeat verse pattern]
Danny, he wants to save for a new guitar
He's going to learn to play but he won't get far
He thinks it's an easy goin' high
But his whole life is just another try

[chrorus]
Give me a heart to hang onto
Give me a suit that's tailored true
Give me a heart to hang onto
A heart to hang onto


[repeat middle pattern]

I need a heart... to hang onto...
