  • Don't hold back, 'cause you woke up in the morning
    With initiative to move, so why make it harder?
    Don't hold back, if you think about it
    So many people do, be cool man, look smarter
    Don't hold back, and you shouldn't even care
    'Bout the losers in the air and their crooked stares
    Don't hold back, 'cause there's a party over here
    So you might as well be here where the people care

    Don't hold back, world (You're holding back)
    The time has come to
    World (You're holding back)
    The time has come to
    World (You're holding back)
    The time has come to
    Galvanize
    Come on, come on, come on with it

    Don't hold back, if you think about it too much
    You may stumble, trip up, fall on your face
    Don't hold back, you think it's time you get up
    Crunch time like a sit-up, pull monkey face
    Don't hold back, put apprehension on the back burner
    Let it sit, don't even get it lit
    Don't hold back, get involved with the jam
    Don't be a prick, hot chick be your fave

    Don't hold back, world (You're holding back)
    The time has come to
    World (You're holding back)
    The time has come to
    World (You're holding back)
    The time has come to
    Galvanize
    Come on with that, come on with it

    World, the time has come to (Push the button)
    World, the time has come to (Push the button)
    World, the time has come to (Push the button)
    World, my finger is on the button
    My finger is on the button
    My finger is on the button (Push the button)

    The time has come to

  • James from Colorado Springs, CoActually, the lyrics say:

    If you think about it too much, you may stumble, trip up, fall on your face...

    Don't hold back...

    You think its time you get up, crunch time, like a sit up, come on keep pace...

    And there is no mention of a monkey face.

    On a side note, this song motivates the crap out of you. If you are bored, and want some inspiration, turn this on, and get busy.
  • Theo from Johannesburg, South Africaone of the lines that Q-Tip raps is "wake up and put on your monkey face", which is a reference to Basement Jaxx's vid for 'Where's your Head At?', which features chimps playing musical instruments.
