Hold On To Your Hat

Album: Steel Wheels (1989)
  • Hold on to your head
    Hold on to your hat
    You're screaming down the alley
    And never coming back
    Get out of my bed
    Get out of the sack
    Don't give me no lip
    Don't you give me no crap
    No way

    Get out the madhouse
    Tear it all down
    Get out the madhouse
    Burn it to the ground
    Got to, got to get out

    Get out of my face
    Get out of my shack
    Now you've had a fair share
    You had a fair whack
    Hold on to your butt
    Hold on to your hat
    You're heading out of here
    And never coming back

    Get out the madhouse
    Tear it all down
    Get out the madhouse
    Burn it to the ground
    We'll never make it
    Don't you fake it
    You're getting loaded
    I'm getting goaded
    Got to, got to get out
    Come on baby

    Hold on to your heart
    Hold on to your hat
    Don't give me no shit
    Don't give me no crap
    Hold on to your head
    Gonna give you the rap
    I've had it up to here
    With your yakety-yak

    You're getting loaded
    I'm getting goaded
    We'll never make it
    Don't you fake it
    Get out the madhouse
    Tear it all down
    Get out the madhouse
    Burn it to the ground
    Got to, got to get out
    Got to get out

    Come on baby
    Come on baby
    Burn it all down
    I'm over with you

    I'm over with you baby
    Get up, get out
    Get up, get out
    Get up Writer/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger
