  • We've been broken down
    To the lowest turn
    Bein' on the bottom line
    Sure ain't no fun

    But if we should be evicted
    Huh, from our homes
    We'll just move somewhere else
    And still carry on

    Oh
    (Hold on) hold on
    (Hold on) hold on
    Ooh, aah, baby

    (Hold on) hold on
    (Hold on) ooh ooh aah

    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now
    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now

    Aah

    Now we may not know, huh
    Where our next meal is coming from
    But with you by my side
    I'll face what is to come

    Aah, boy I want to thank you
    Yeah, for loving me this way
    Things may be a little hard now
    But we'll find a brighter day

    Oh, yeah
    (Hold on) hold on
    (Hold on) hold on
    Ooh, ooh ooh

    (Hold on) hold on
    (Hold on) won't be long
    Ooh, yeah

    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now
    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now
    Ooh ooh ooh

    Talk about the only way is up, baby
    Talk about the only way

    Talk about the only way is up, baby
    Talk about the only way
    Talk about the only way is up, baby

    (Hold on) hold on
    (Hold on) hold on
    Hey

    (Hold on) hold on
    (Hold on) won't be long
    No no no

    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now
    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now

    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now
    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now

    The only way is up
    For you and me now
    The only way is up, baby
    For you and me now

    The only way is up
    For you and me now
    The only way is up
    For you and me now

    The only way is up
    For you and me now
    The only way is up
    For you and me now Writer/s: GEORGE HENRY JACKSON, JOHNNY RAY HENDERSON
